Summer Youth Program

SEED 2 FEED Summer Youth Program:

Through the hands-on work of growing food, cooking, and food justice outreach, our summer SEED 2 FEED program will grow strong, healthy, and inspired teens who live in Prince George’s County. We create a safe space where they can experience leadership development, personal growth, collaboration and job training.

Over the summer, young people will acquire skills and knowledge about a sustainable food system through urban farming, composting, nutrition education, and healthy living. They will assist with cultivating vegetables at the Edmonston Farm, cook (and eat) delicious food, and find their own voices through creative arts. Through field trips, they will explore food and health in Prince George’s County.

Experienced urban farmers, artists, nutritionists and environmentalists will teach the youth about sustainability, local food production, healthy cooking and eating.

OUR 2018 PROGRAM

Program participants are recruited through our partner organizations. We will consider accepting a limited number of youth to enroll in the program who can earn service learning hours for their participation.
