It’s been a while! This semester has been pretty crazy for me, since I’m taking three classes while also working two jobs (plus, occasionally, I like to pretend I have a life outside of those things). So, I’ll keep this one quick. Farmers’ market season may be drawing to a close, but as a follow-up to my post on supporting local farms, I’d like to bring to your attention a local program called The Food Project.
The Food Project works with teens and volunteers to farm produce and distributes that produce to local hunger-relief organizations, farmers’ markets, and CSAs. Here are some videos that explain the project further:
It looks like a great program, both in terms of sustainable farming without pesticides and community service. What a wonderful way to get kids involved and inspired.
