Cultivating a generation 26.4.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The Yampa Valley Autism Program is cultivating more than just vegetables. Its Community Cultivation program, established for individuals with disabilities and at-risk youth, cultivates life and social skills that help its members grow right alongside the produce. With 25 members, many of whom are diagnosed with autism, the nonprofit relies on a mix of teachers, paraprofessionals and student staff members utilizing horticulture to create a work environment that gives members the experience of an employee. “It provides responsibility and challenges in an environment that is relaxing and therapeutic,” says Yampa Valley Autism Program Executive Director Lisa Lorenz.
