Who leads the workshops?

The workshops are led by the youth in The Food Project's Root Crew. These teenagers are our most experienced youth staff members.

 

How long are the workshops?

Many groups visit The Food Project for a one-day workshop experience, which lasts about one hour and is intended to raise awareness about how many different social issues are connected to food. Some groups choose to extend this experience by pairing the workshops with farm work experience on one of The Food Project's farms. In addition, some groups elect to participate in a longer-term partnership. These groups attend workshops on several different days, and experience workshops that go into greater depth.

 

Where do the workshops take place?

The workshops can be led at one of The Food Project's locations or at the group’s site. Workshops run at a Food Project site are often paired with work experience on one of our farms.

 

When do the workshops take place?

Workshops are scheduled on an individual basis, and usually take place on Saturdays or weekday afternoons.

 

Are there any age requirements for the groups?

All group members must be in 8th grade or above. The workshops are most appropriate for high school, college, and adult audiences.

 

How much do the workshops cost?

The suggested donation for the one-time workshop experience is $150. This price includes the cost of training and employing youth interns, as well as supplying materials and delivering the workshops. If your group is able to contribute all or any portion of this cost, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, we are still able to run our workshops.
