We love having friends and family on the farm! 👩‍🌾👨‍🌾👫👫🌾🌌✨ At family dinner, our summer youth got to show their families all of the hard work they’ve done all summer. We’re so proud of them! #youthfarmproject #foodjustice #youngfarmers #sustainableagriculture #knowyourfarmer #ithaca

We can’t wait to get back on the farm tomorrow and we can’t believe that it’s the last official week of the summer program! So much to fit in and lots of fun for the week ahead 🌱 #youthfarmproject #youngfarmers #foodjustice #sustainableagriculture
An inspiring visit from @rafaflocka of @rockyacrescommunityfarm who presented “Are Chickens Racist?” for development day this week. We explored the history of chickens and racism and had a great discussion. We all learned so much- thanks Rafa! #youthfarmproject #foodjustice #socialjustice #socialjusticewarriors #antiracism #youngfarmers

We can’t wait for family dinner on the farm tonight! 👨‍👩‍👧👩‍👩‍👧👨‍👨‍👧🌌✨ We spent all day preparing, beautifying the farm, and cooking up a delicious veggie meal!

No food without soil!
“Essentially all life depends upon the soil. There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together.”
Learning about the importance of soils and compost! So much life in one handful 🐛✨ #youthfarmproject #foodjustice #youngfarmers #compost #soilmatters
