Gardening and microenterprise combined can be a good thing, but put in some context so that the microenterprise is taken on in the spirit of skill-building (of many kinds) rather than major income generation.  a microenterprise can build useful youth development skills -- project planning, communications, design, language arts, art, theater, math, city planning, personal financial planning, etc, depending upon the adult leadership.  income from a small enterprise could be used to open savings accounts for each youth involved in addition to being put back into the 'business' and some being set aside to fund a special event for the youth.  The likelihood of it really making 'a lot' of $ isn't great, but done in a realistic manner it could have a lot to offer.
