Youth Food Activist: 2018 Application
Island Grown Schools is offering a free summer program for rising 9th graders. Participants, or "Youth Food Activists" (YFAs), will gain agricultural experience and life skills through immersion in Martha's Vineyard agricultural community. Activities will include working on Island Farms, working in school gardens, working with Island Gleaners (gleaning produce on farms around the island), making shared meals with gleaned produce, working in the community garden at Thimble Farm, working on our Youth Food Activist ⅛ acre plot at Thimble Farm, and skill building (learning how to process vegetables and herbs to make food or useful home products such as tick spray, lip balm, etc.).

The program runs for 6 weeks this summer from July 9th through August 17th. Rising 9th graders can sign up for 1 or more weeks. This program only takes 4 Youth Food Activists each week, so we will interview applicants for each week's spots. You WILL NOT be officially enrolled in this program until you receive confirmation from Island Grown Schools.
