Our youth programs aim to allow young people to explore agriculture, while instilling a desire to serve others and make a positive impact! Throughout the year, we offer a variety of workshops, events and online resources. All programs are developed for youth ages 8-16.

Summer Service Workshops

July 2021- Dates TBD

Join us for a series of three workshops on agriculture and service. This fun-filled series explores livestock and crop production in addition to food security in Western North Carolina. Participants will tour a farm, meet some furry and feathered livestock, complete a fun STEM experiment, and assist in harvesting produce for those in need. This program is in partnership with Jackson County 4-H and is open to youth in Jackson and Swain counties, ages 8-16. Families are welcome to join as well!
