Spring is on its way and that means the Espanola YMCA Teen Center, operated by the Los Alamos Family YMCA, is preparing to begin its annual Go-Green-Go! environmental project.
Youth will have the opportunity to learn about agriculture and the importance of preserving natural resources.
The teens also will gain hands-on experience through growing their choice of vegetation during the summer months.
At the end of the cycle, the novice farmers harvest their vegetation to give to a friend, senior citizen or take home.
