Learn about a SARE-funded summer apprenticeship with 5 Bangladeshi-American teens working with Bandhu Gardens, an urban farm in Detroit. Hear about the youths' experiences from the apprenticeship, advice for other programs looking to work with youth, and reflections on their family's cultural practices related to community food systems and sustainable agriculture farming operations.
