SO FRESH Week, Spring Break Youth, April 2016 at Waterford Country School.

The FRESH Summer Fellowship Program is for young people entering 9th through 12th grade. We will learn and grow together throughout the summer. Our Summer Fellows will connect to the earth, learn about food justice and community. They will also grow, harvest and cook fresh food. Participating youth are eligible for New London Youth Affairs Summer Youth Employment or may earn a stipend for their work. Click Here for more information and to pre-apply.  

 Saturdays at the FRESH Garden

At FRESH, we grow food with the community, for the community!
Our Saturday volunteer days connect you with the land to learn and grow. Whether you are an expert, or not, you’ll share and learn about urban growing, interact with new people from our beautiful community, and you will love your work. We provide volunteers with free snacks and drinks. Students and community members can earn service hours.

Come and work with us, and help us to build a better (more sustainable, more just and more beautiful) food system! Click here to sign up or just come by!

Every Saturday, rain or shine, between 9am and 1pm at our community garden at the corner of William and Mercer Streets.
