We will be practicing with guidelines sourced from CDC recommendations which
include social distancing, mask-wearing, and lots of handwashing.

The program and space promote connections between the earth, our soil, and our health.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
The Moonwater Farm Youth Leadership Development is a week of skill building and team collaboration to support young people (15 and older) in developing and showcasing their leadership skills.
Upon successful completion of the CIT Training program, youth may have the opportunity to use these leadership skills as youth leaders at Farm Camp. If selected, they will provide mentorship, support, and leadership to younger campers for other weeks of Farm Camp and receive a stipend.
On a beautiful urban farm, young people will explore a food forest, natural herb patches, and a chicken coop. They will learn to care for goats, get to know the farm’s bunnies and vegetable patches, and experience a pond ecosystem. On top of learning farming and Earth care skills, they will also build community with one another, practice teamwork, get creative with many different art forms, and play fun games!
Animal Week may include:
Milking and tending goats
Planting vegetable beds
Making compost with worms
Woodworking, clay, or textile arts
