The Abundant Table offers innovative, farm-based programs for school-aged children and youth to promote healthy eating, good nutrition, and a greater connection to our diverse agricultural community that are grounded in faith-rooted values of love, justice and compassion. The biblical instruction to care for the earth is given new life through:

  • Youth Group Weekend Overnights (ages 12-17) – Friday through Sunday (2 nights)
  • Seedlings Youth Immersion Project (ages 12-17) – Camp out on the farm for a week (5 nights)

 Including:

  • Introduction to the food system
  • Planting, weeding & harvesting seasonal vegetables in the field
  • Interactive discussion of environmental issues
  • Volunteering at the local Food Bank
  • Reflection on the value of farm worker labor
  • Communal meal preparation with the “fruits” of your labors
  • Opportunity to join in the balanced rhythm of prayer, work and reflection with The Abundant Table Community
