The first site visit was in Aurora to visit the TLC (Teens Leading Change) Community Garden by Be Global.

Students gave presentations to the board members on what the project has meant to them and how they are learning the art of gardening, healthy eating and even business by selling the produce at the local farmers market.

The teens were accepted into this program through an interview process.
