Summer 2017 Application Opens January 3, 2017! Applications closes March 13, 2017.
Seed Crew brings together around 100 teenagers from diverse cultural, racial, economic, and geographic backgrounds to work on our urban and suburban farms in Lincoln, Boston, and on the North Shore. During the summer, they work together to grow vegetables sustainably and distribute thousands of pounds of produce while developing important leadership, teamwork, diversity, and civic participation skills.
After working on our farms each morning, Seed Crew youth spend many afternoons participating in workshops that address a variety of issues, including sustainable agriculture, social justice, and reflection. They also spend one day a week at a local hunger relief organization preparing and serving the produce that they have grown. Each Seed Crew also gets the opportunity to sell produce at farmers' markets that accept SNAP/EBT benefits as a form of payment. Youth in Seed Crew are held to high standards of performance and behavior and earn a biweekly stipend for their work.
