Food and movement, whether to other gardens or to other meetings, are 
always popular with youth.  Most really are interested in helping others 
less fortunate, such as people physically handicapped by age or disease, 
with their gardens.  Perhaps even a civic project.  Contact your local 
extension office and see what works for their youth programs.
