Farm Pantry: A Community Service Program for Teens ages 15 – 18
March through November
Free – Family Membership suggested
Saturday, November 14th an eager cadre of volunteers, both families and students, convened at Holly Hill Farm to help prepare the Farm Pantry garden for the winter, harvest winter butternut and acorn squash, collard greens, Swiss chard, celery, potatoes and scallions. Seaweed collected from nearby shores was spread over the gardens including the newly planted garlic rows to protect and nourish the soil in preparation for Spring 2016 planting.

The rewarding Farm Pantry program for teens is fast becoming one of our most popular! Students explore organic growing methods as they help to sow, grow, harvest and deliver fresh produce for local food pantries in Cohasset and Hull, as well as Father Bill’s Place, a community shelter in Quincy. Early in the season, tasks help ensure the successful growth of crops. Later in the growing season the focus shifts to harvesting crops. Students are welcome to attend one, two or all twelve sessions! Participants will exit the program with documented hours of community service (a graduation requirement for some local students), a letter of recommendation and a sense of meaningful accomplishment in helping to make fresh, local produce available to clients at food pantries. Interested students are required to complete an application and write a letter of interest in order to participate. Forms are available on our website. Questions?
