On Thursday, July 10th the Greenwich Youth Conservation Program at the Greenwich Land Trust (GYCP@GLT) dropped off fresh produce at Neighbor to Neighbor.

GYCP@GLT is a teen mentorship and training program that employs seven Greenwich teens to get hands on experience in what it takes to manage land.

During the six week program, funded by The Resource Foundation, the teens will work on The Greenwich Land Trust’s properties and learn about invasive management, horticulture, and ecology. The teens will also be working on projects that support the community including bringing the garden’s harvest to area food banks and an environmental education day with local youths.

The GYCP@GLT teens will make weekly produce drop offs at Neighbor to Neighbor, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving residents in need throughout the Greenwich area. Neighbor to Neighbor provides free food to over 1,000 Greenwich residents every month and clothing to residents of Greenwich, Stamford and Port Chester.
