First Week of Summer 2015

Kicking off the Summer 2015 program!

Our crew is stoked to start Summer jobs on the FoodWhat Farm! Over the next few weeks, we'll develop our leadership skills, educate our communities about food justice, work in the fields to grow our own food, and work in the kitchen to get that food to our plates.

We've got a lot in store for this summer to accomplish all of these goals. 

Here's what it'll look like:
  • Always starting the day with an ice breaker to warm up
  • Working on the FoodWhat farm to grow our food
  • CSA harvest for our crew, families, and farm stands at Bayview Elementary School in Santa Cruz and Radcliff Elementary School in Watsonville
  • BLASTS! Heading out to various school gardens to bust out some big projects
  • Partnering with the Homeless Garden Project, People Power, Project ReGeneration and other amazing local nonprofits and activist
  • Working the production fields at Live Earth Farm
  • A Regional Bay Area Youth Summit at Pie Ranch as part of Rooted In Community
  • Sending 5 folks from our crew to Detroit for the national Rooted In Community youth conference
  • Leadership, empowerment, nutrition, and food justice workshops
  • Mind body awareness practices
  • Cooking and learning with guest chefs
Here are some photos from our first day of team building games and exercises:
