Next weekend, SEEDS will be hosting an open house and interest meeting for this coming year’s SAPlings Farm Club for middle school students! SAPLINGs is an empowerment internship for Youth of Color grades 6-8. Our program empowers youth and dismantles institutionalized racism in the Food System by teaching participants how to grow and cook food, by sharing food with their families and communities, and by providing the opportunity to sell the produce they grow at market and to our partners. Know a middle schooler who would be a great fit for this program? Check out our website and come by from 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM on August 17 to learn more and sign up for this coming year. All youth programs are completely free. Questions? Email Applications open for SEEDlings Fall 2018 If the heat of July is making you wish for the cool breeze of fall, we’re right there with you!
