Do You Have Any Questions?

We love to educate people about our program. Please see the frequently asked questions below, or contact us if you have more!

WHAT IS SEEDS OF CHANGE?

Alaska Seeds of Change is a vertical hydroponics greenhouse located in the midtown area. Through our greenhouse we provide supported employment, comprehensive educational and vocational services, and community-based behavioral health services to up to 20 transition-age (16-24 years old) young adults. Youth participate in all major aspects of running our urban agriculture business, with the opportunity to take on increasing job responsibilities and leadership roles.

HOW DO I REFER A YOUTH TO YOUR PROGRAM?

Youth interested in the program can apply for a job as a greenhouse worker. That’s it! If you are a provider referring a youth you may contact us to discuss details, but we do not use any other application or referral packet.
