The Los Alamos Youth Food Project’s [LAYFP] key goal is to develop a community garden adjacent to the Los Alamos Middle School near the new Solar Array and KRSN AM 1490 antenna.

The garden will be available to K-12 LA Public School students, to community organizations and to individuals.

Other garden locations may be developed as well, including a greenhouse at the Los Alamos Cooperative Market.

Students will learn a wide variety of skills by participating in the project, such as biology, environmental studies, communications, marketing, social networking, project planning, engineering and much more.
