Empowering Youth

FRESH works with young people to increase their impact in the community. We help youth find and develop their voice in order to create a more sustainable and just food system.

Applications for our Spring Program are now closed!

This Spring, we will be focusing on:

*Urban Farming 101: the basics of farming, gardening, growing, and harvesting food!

*Strengthening teamwork skills: how to work with others to achieve a common goal for our community

*Identity work: Who are you? What is your identity in New London and how does that connect to food? What does food sovereignty mean?

Agriculture

Youth help us grow food at our urban gardens. From seed to sale, they are involved every step of the way, learning about the wide variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruit that we grow. Crops are all sold and donated throughout our community. 

Leading the Community

We are committed to giving youth the tools they need to be leaders in making food system change. Our youth programs include opportunities to build and practice leadership, such as teaching younger children and advocating through public presentations.
