The Pollinators program

Welcome to The Pollinators

 

The Food Project is pleased to offer an enriching summer program tailored for 7th graders transitioning into 8th grade, offering a unique blend of community engagement and personal development.

Our program is an immersive educational experience centered around sustainable agriculture, healthy food systems, and social justice; through engaging workshops and hands-on activities. By the program’s end, day camp participants will have gained a deeper understanding of their own identity, acquired invaluable knowledge about agricultural and food production systems, and explored different culinary recipes.

Our overarching goal is to foster a strong sense of community among youth, empowering them to make positive contributions within their schools, communities, and beyond.

Join us at The Pollinators and embark on a journey of discovery, growth, and impactful change.
