Our Summer Youth Community Agriculture Program (YCAP) is a seven-week summer employment opportunity for Louisville youth ages 16-19 years old. Summer YCAP gives local youth experience with planting, cultivating, harvesting, cooking, and marketing fresh vegetables over the course of the season. Participants spend part of their time maintaining vegetable farm fields, creating their own recipes, and exploring their local food system. They also have the opportunity to develop culinary skills working with local chefs in their kitchens, develop entrepreneurial skills working with local business leaders, and develop leadership skills working with representatives from around the state of Kentucky. YCAP crew members also market and sell the produce they cultivate at the South Points Farmers Market.
