Fresh Fellows

About the Program

The Fresh Fellows Teen Program works in conjunction with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital  and other community partners. This program operates out of the Dover Street Edible Park in North Oakland, which contains a ¼ acre edible landscape. The Fresh Fellows Program works to empower youth ages 13-19 to engage in and shape their food system. The program runs an eight week course in the spring, summer and fall and integrates exercise, gardening activities, cooking, nutrition, and food justice workshops. Upon completion of this program, many youth go on to participate in the Phat Beetz Youth Pickle Company.  More info on the program can be found at
