The Oconee Cultivation Project (OCP) provides young people with opportunities to develop skills through mentorship and education in sustainable agriculture, culinary practices, and local food production. During our six-week summer program, CultivaTeen, a vibrant team of talented crew leaders and workshop volunteers works with local youth to encourage lifelong learning and engagement in our community. As teen crew members achieve goals in the garden and kitchen, they experience the collective sense of accomplishment and learn more about all that our area has to offer. Through this program and our collaboration with various organizations, we strive to create a community that celebrates local food, agricultural traditions, and sustainable living practices.


This was such an awesome opportunity for our family. We are so happy we found you...
