KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An urban farmer in Kansas City is using his skills and life experience to cultivate the minds of young men.

Dre Taylor is the founder of Males to Men, a rites of passage program that works to raise “strong, conscious and productive young men.”

“A man has accountability and responsibility with himself and his community and that’s what we try to teach our young men,” Taylor said.
