Breaking Ground is for anyone aged 15 – 25 wanting to work hands-on, gain useful experiences, be creative or get your voice heard about the things that matter.

Our celebration day is for anyone to come down and check out what we do. It is also for our Breaking Ground group to bring friends and family to see what we’ve been doing. We’ll be making pizza’s in our very own pizza oven and toasting s’mores!
