Interns will learn about growing vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees, and are rewarded with a vegetable basket weekly.
A commitment of six scheduled hours working, and one morning of harvesting is required weekly. Interns must also be local as no housing is available. Interns will be working both in the garden and with the public it serves.
The program gives access to fresh vegetables and fruits to those who need them most through the “Buy-Give” Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Every share of the harvest that’s bought means produce is grown and given to needy families, food banks, and other charitable food groups, and it supports the youth jobs program.
TFF is a faith-based nonprofit, supported by the Parkway United Methodist Church, and the Tedder Neighborhood Watch.
The TFF Garden is behind the United Methodist Church at 100 NE 44th St., Pompano Beach.
