Hudson Valley Youth in Agriculture
We are not alone! 7 groups of teens who grow food have started a consortium with the goals of, sharing techniques, collaborative projects, and camaraderie. It's always a good time when we get together!
Urban Agricultural Classes
A course in growing food within city limits. Students learned farming history and current techniques. We studied soil, seeds, pollinators, planting... and put it into action!
Students spent the summer and early fall deepening their knowledge of food growing and food systems at the Downing Park Urban Farm. Our CORE is working to extend this into a year round internship.
