YAP Shares the Bounty

The Tutorial Center’s Youth Agriculture Project grows and harvests hundreds of pounds of organic produce: a bounty of potatoes, kale, onions, broccoli, parsley, eggplant, garlic, green beans, zucchini, tomatoes, and more.

This season, the youth have supported our community by providing their organic produce to the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center for the medical center cafeteria, to the Bennington Meals on Wheels program for distribution to the needy, and to area restaurants.

What we hear...


“[The student] has made significant gains in reading. Her MAP reading score in September was 156 and on the first percentile. We have just finished our spring testing and she is now on the 45th percentile with a score of 188. She is now performing at grade level. All around, she is much happier and confident. Her parents and I can see a big difference in attitude.”
