US: Teens to start join farmers’ market with container grown vegetables

The Warehouse - a Wilmington-based community space billed as “For Teens, By Teens” - is teaming up with Delmarva Power. The Warehouse and Delmarva Power plan to work together on several new initiatives, according to Melody Phillips, director of operations at The Warehouse.
