MISSOULA - The next generation of leaders are learning ways to make the world a better place.
On Sunday, about 150 youth from around the state of Montana came to Missoula for the first ever Youth Summit.
The program is put on by the "Farm to Cafeteria Network" and the "National Center for Appropriate Technology".
Over the three-day event, youth will learn to teach their peers about sustainable food, healthy living, and community systems.
This includes visiting sites around Missoula like the PEAS farm.
A 16-year-old participant from Billings, Alice Zeeb, was impressed by what the farm offers.
"I learned about how hard it is to keep a farm going but I like seeing how, if you work together, you can get things done and naturally instead of processed."
The group will continue their learning through various workshops on Monday.
