EVERY YEAR WE HIRE 10-12 High School students to work on the farm as their summer job.
This incredibly popular and competitive opportunity emphasizes important job training skills: attendance, attitude and team spirit. Summer Youth Leaders are prepared for future job and leadership positions via sustainable agriculture! They get experience with hands-on farm work, training in entrepreneurship, nutrition/cooking, and community organizing.
Students lead fieldwork activities for adult and youth volunteers, lead farm tours, sell produce and assist market customers, conduct cooking demonstrations at our farmers market, canvass the neighborhood as part of market outreach, and survey market customers on their customer satisfaction. Through all of these activities and more, these teens to become food advocates within their community, and also to become compassionate, responsible and successful in the workplace.
