They must have the ability to get to downtown KCMO where the BG bus will transport them to the farm.They must have an interest in at least one of these fields – Agriculture, Construction, Culinary Arts, Graphic Design, Public Speaking, Sales, Animals or Landscaping. The youth can commit to the program for 2 years. And of course they have to want to make their own money and have a job.
