Farm & Food Teen Training Program















In this program, teens join a group of 10-15 peers, and progress through a year of growing food on the farm and then a year of cooking and catering with local chefs. The group then progresses to planning and running a farm or food related business for the next two years.

We currently serve between 40 and 50 teens each year. Our goal is to add one group of 15 teens each year.

All along the way, teens are paid modest amounts for hands-on farm and catering work. As their businesses profit, they profit. At each stage of the project, the teens also give back and share some of what they have gained with the community: knowledge, fresh produce, prepared food, and more!
