Summer Teen Ag Program Offered
Are you a teen, or the parent or caregiver of a teen who is interested in food, wants to grow a garden or learn how to cook? Teens ages 13-18 who have a passion for healthy food, a spirit of giving back to their community, and a belief that all people deserve access to healthy food are invited to sign up for the Summer 2019 Teen Agriculture Program (Teen Ag).
The week-long Teen Ag Program was established in 2018 and is a collaborative effort between Healthy Acadia and Narraguagus High School’s Future Farmers of America chapter and Food Justice League that focuses on building skills and knowledge in the areas of sustainable food production, local food systems, healthy cooking, and reducing food waste.
Projects and activities will include building the Mary Endre Memorial Garden, field trips to local farms, gardens and host organizations and people who are working to make a difference in our local food systems. In addition, each day students will prepare their own healthy lunches.
Summer 2019 Teen Ag is scheduled for Monday July 15 through Friday July 19 from 8:30am to 2:30pm, and Sunday, July 21 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Students ages 13 to 18 may apply. Applicants must be 13 years of age by January 1st of the year of application. The program will take place at Narraguagus High School in Harrington during the week. On Sunday July 21, students will prepare their final project – a community meal at the Downeast Table of Plenty, a weekly feast hosted by the Maine Seacoast Mission.
Interested teens are encouraged to apply for this unique opportunity to gain skills, get experiences that will last a lifetime, potentially receive community service and core proficiency hours all in a supportive and healthy environment. Deadline for applications is June 15, 2019.
