The completion of an intense 6 weeks of learning and loving ourselves, each other and the natural world (oh and all while running an organic farm). I am incredibly proud of these teenagers, they are the change this world needs.
Check out some highlights from this summer's Seed Crew. These young people were very busy over the last 6.5 weeks, spending 3,864 hours in 50 workshops, serving 2,925 hours at hunger relief organizations, and helping to harvest over 50,000 pounds of food—all while working during one of the hottest summers on record! Thank you Seed Crew for all the laughs, hard-work, and great memories. Visit link in bio for more photos.
We just wrapped up Seed Crew for the summer. Yesterday was the last day in Greater Boston and we finished up on the North Shore today. This summer, these tremendous young people worked tirelessly during one of the hottest summers on record to help harvest over 200,000 pounds of produce, weeded the farms, prepared food for hunger relief organizations, and learned important lessons about food and social justice. All while making life-long friends. None of this would be possible without your support. Enjoy this photo album of the much deserved last day shenanigans and join us in wishing these young leaders success in whatever the next steps on their life's journey are.

Thanks to all of the North Shore alumni who came to Ingalls Farm yesterday for dinner. It was great to see so many faces from so many years and hear about the amazing things everyone is doing. And to all who couldn’t make it, know that you are missed. Keep your eyes open for a December gathering and have a great rest of the summer! See you soon! #thefoodproject
