Junior Farmers

Junior Farmers is a multi-session educational summer program offered at the farm and other site-visits to facilitate experiential learning. Over the course of each week, kids learn to grow and care for plants, cook with fresh produce, investigate where food comes from in our community, learn about food waste management, pollination, biodiversity, etc. Schools interested in participating may write to info@eastiefarm.com.

The very first offering of this program was done as a partnership between Eastie Farm and Food Corps’s Ellie Doyle. Some favorite activities for kids included making homemade pickles, herbed butter, and fresh pesto; giving back to our neighbors at our local soup kitchen; and creating our own hanging planters from recycled materials.
