Visit the Farm at VYCC (Vermont Youth Conservation Corps) for a guided farm tour including a look inside the historic West Monitor Barn, a walk along a mowed pathway featuring views of the production fields and the beautiful landscape, delicious fresh food and drink samples, and so much more.
In addition to learning about the barn's history and VYCC as a whole, hear from the Farm Manager about the farm's production, get an overview of Health Care Share from the Community Health Program Manager and a partner from the University of Vermont, and listen to high school age workers themselves detailing their VYCC work experience.
The tour will culminate with attendees helping to pack VYCC's nationally recognized and award winning weekly share! Most stops along the way will include a food and drink sample prepared by VYCC's in house food program team!
This is a Vermont Open Farm Week event you won't want to miss! Pre-registration for this FREE tour is required. Please do so by e-mailing Andrew at email@example.com.
The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps' Food and Farm Program empowers youth to unite with their community to address the complex issues of hunger, nutrition, food access, sustainable agriculture, and responsible land use. "VYCC didn’t just teach me how to farm and about healthy food, it also taught me how to interact with co-workers, how to socialize, how to be a good employee, and how to create good connections with co-workers. People who work on the VYCC farm crew are not just co-workers to me, I see them as friends and family.” — RoZe
