The CSC Youth Garden has been featured in the May 30, 2013 issue of the Corvallis Advocate. Reporter Bridget Egan talked with CSC's Sharee Cooper, Armand Schoppy, and Sean Larsen, as well as youth workers Kayla and Austin.

The article highlights the youth workers' skill in the garden and at the Farmer's Market, as what they have been accomplishing with their educations.

The article also mentions the Youth Garden's partnership with the Trillium Children’s Farm Home in Corvallis, which will allow the Youth Garden to farm a half acre on the Farm Home's 50-acre campus. Some of the food will go to the Farm Home, some of it will go to the Linn-Benton Food Share, and the rest will be sold at market.

Many thanks to the Corvallis Advocate for highlighting our wonderful CSC Youth Garden and all of the people that keep this successful program going!
