On Tuesday, 6/28, 22 youth gathered at Three Swallows/Youth Farm for an orientation to summer employment at the Youth Farm. During the first day everyone got to learn each others names. Everyone also had the opportunity to write their favorite word on the chalk board and share why it was important for them. Later in the day we worked on weeding the garlic and harvesting one wheel barrow full of garlic scapes. For Wednesday and Thursday of this week the Youth Farm Program participated in the Youth Grow Summit at Cornell where we were fortunate to learn lots. In addition we were able to hear inspiring stories from our neighbors in New York State. e.g. East New York Farms in Brooklyn and Mass. ave. in Buffalo
