WiseTribe's #GertDirtyInDelray challenge is designed and led by 8th graders from Carver Middle School and aims to foster community resilience and awareness of food solutions and sustainability. Guided by wise members of the community, these Young Leaders are working to get more people in Delray Beach to grow their own food through creative container gardens.
Would your school or youth group like to join the movement? Outreach events are being scheduled with our partners WiseTribe and service prep days are available at DBCG to help support this expanding project. Let’s strengthen our community together.

FARMER JAY's JUNIOR SPROUTS
In Fall 2018, DBCG will be partnering with Farmer Jay to offer his 8-week Junior Sprouts Program. Jason McCobb is an expert in Sustainable Agriculture, specializing in Urban Gardening. With the belief that the garden is an extension of nature and something that must be protected and nurtured, Jay never uses pesticides or synthetic chemicals. In addition to farming and building gardens, Farmer Jay has also developed a program for children called Farmer Jay’s Jr. Sprouts, which teaches kids where food comes from and helps to pass along the lost art of Sustainable Agriculture. He and his wife have recently turned Farmer Jay's Jr. Sprouts into a non-profit organization and together, they look forward to making an impact in their local community by teaching the next generation how to grow their own food.
