Tour VYCC and hear from Corps Members (youth and young adults) along the way. We will check out 12 acres of organic vegetable, poultry, and egg production, and hear about how the Health Care Share connects over 400 families with a CSA. We will enter the active construction site of the East Monitor Barn (built 1901), currently being restored. Then, enjoy a farm-fresh lunch, made from food grown and prepared by Corps Members, in the restored historic West Monitor Barn. Our farm stand will be open.
We welcome contributions. Suggested donation is $20 and any amount is appreciated.
Registration is required. This event is limited to 12 guests. https://www.vycc.org/open-farm-week/
The Farm at VYCC is powered and led by youth and young adults participating in paid service experiences. They grow organic vegetables, eggs, and chicken; and deliver weekly shares to over 400 families managing food insecurity and/or diet related illness. The program is primarily funded by participating medical center partners, AmeriCorps, and a community of generous supporters and sponsors.
