Youth FarmWorks San Diego

Youth FarmWorks, a job training urban farm, provides refugee, immigrant, and at-risk youth from the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego with job readiness skills. The program provides a dynamic balance of learning and earning. Youth FarmWorks participants earn a stipend selling sustainably-grown produce on-site at our farm, while receiving training in organic vegetable production, farming sales and marketing, job interviewing and public speaking. Small Axe Peppers partners with Youth FarmWorks in San Diego to source peppers at premium prices to help support this job readiness program.
