About SYGW:

Our program was founded in 1995 by Margaret Hauptman, who wanted to provide jobs and training for homeless youth in the University District. Through her volunteer job at a drop-in center, Margaret became aware of how street-identified youth were disenfranchised and thus created a program that aimed to involve and empower youth. We started a small landscaping project and grew into the successful garden to market projects that we run today.

The garden is a perfect setting for a job skills training program for youth. Crewmembers learn valuable and marketable job skills in a supportive work setting. They learn how to plant, tend, and harvest organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers from seed for market, how to write a resume, cashier, provide customer service, track sales and inventory, develop entrepreneurial spirit and marketing skills, be reliable, and how to be an effective employee.
