Teen Urban Farmers expand work through partnership with Ithaca Bakery

Posted on Aug 22 2019 - 6:10am by UOG

The Ithaca Children’s Garden (ICG) is an award-winning public children’s garden free and open to all every day of the year, from dawn to dusk. Its mission is to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards, and does so through authentic, hands-on, child-led engagement with the natural world.

Ithaca Bakery is a local destination that has stood the test of time and remains today one of the busiest eateries in town. And so it made perfect sense for these two Ithaca favorites to work together in the best interests of our community. Ithaca Bakery donates cold brew coffee to be sold at the garden’s Teen Urban Farmers (TUF) Farm Stand Café all summer long. Emmy’s Organics macaroons, other drinks, healthy snacks and new ICG merchandise will also be available for purchase. Pete’s Dandy Mart supplies daily ice needs. Feel free to enjoy your refreshments on the new Farm Stand patio area, which was made possible by support from the Haslinger Foundation out of Akron, Ohio. All proceeds from sales at the stand will go toward providing critical support for the TUF program.
