Spark-Y Open House

And 2019 Annual Internship Celebration

Help us celebrate our 9th annual graduating class of Spark-Y interns!

This event is open to the community.
Enjoy project presentations from our interns, tours of our Urban Agriculture Lab at the Casket Arts Building, and a short presentation.

Special guest speaker: Irene Fernando, Hennepin County Commissioner.

See you there!



We refer to our internship as a “sustainability bootcamp,” where youth are placed in teams and given a real-world project to complete on deadline with environmental and financial outcomes. 2019 interns will be sharing their projects through interactive presentations. This year’s projects include biolubricant research, youth-led library workshops, construction of sustainable systems, and an expansion of our Urban Ag Lab surrounding the Casket Arts Building.

We are so excited to celebrate the lasting contributions of our 2019 Spark-Y interns!
