Youth Driven Garden

The TYEF Garden is an organic community garden space located in Portland, Maine that teaches trans and gender non-conforming youth the knowledge and skills of gardening. This beautiful space brings our kids together for fun social time and gives them a great sense of accomplishment.

There is an opportunity each year for a trans youth intern to have a leadership role in the garden.
