Abbo Youth Core!

The Abbo Youth Core is one of our favorite new projects!

Here's the scoop:
There are few precious opportunities for kids to focus and be part of a bigger picture, where their contribution really counts and they have opportunity to build esteem through contribution and accomplishment. In order to help, we have created the Abbo Youth Core.

Kids will gather for 10 weeks from June 12 thru August 13 (we would love a second session if we can figure out school schedules) The activity is this: the Youth Core will be responsible for assisting in the packing of our Veggie Share boxes! A job invaluable to our farm’s function.

You’ll get to meet weekly for 6 hours, move and shake, contribute in a big way and make new friends. We will also build in some separate social occasions - an opportunity to play as hard as we work. The Core will get to help us work out the details on these events... be it a movie night, a pizza party, playing music or maybe even a camp out on the farm! Please let me know if you have kids who would be interested! We are hoping to accommodate ages 12-16.

Did you know?

When Columbus first arrived in the Americas, there were close to 300 varieties of corn being grown on the continent. Today, only 16 varieties of corn account for over 70% of the corn being grown in the United States. With the advent of genetically engineered corn, we are in danger of losing all genetic diversity, leaving the nations corn crop open to widespread destruction by a single fungus or disease.
