    Freshtoberfest- Cleveland's Youth Garden Battle

    FRESHTOBERFEST is Cleveland's youth garden battle.



    Calling all foodies: We pair local chefs with youth gardens for a tasting competition and fresh food celebration. Fill your tummy with healthy goodness and cast your vote!Cast your VOTES to decide who has the freshest taste, presentation, and educational impact! 



    Our Mission: We motivate and empower youth to grow fresh food in their neighborhood or school garden and challenge them to become creative, healthy leaders.

     

    How This Works: We found local chefs who are passionate about empowering youth to grow fresh and eat fresh. We paired them up with youth gardens to help students prepare the food grown in their own community or school garden. At a few of these gardens, Dee Jay Doc and the Fresh Camp helped students create songs about their gardening experience that would motivate others to eat FRESH, live FRESH and be FRESH!
