Food For Thought

Noah had such a great experience with [Trellis For Tomorrow]. He grew with his social interaction, his work ethic and level of responsibility. We noticed a more confident Noah, who was willing to try new foods and new adventures. Anybody that asks about what he did this summer, he glows and immediately talks about [Trellis For Tomorrow].”


Food For Thought (FFT) is a 5-week work experience for teens age 13 – 18. While working on local organic farms, they will learn valuable soft skills such as teamwork, communication, time management and more. Youth will participate in an entrepreneurship project, which will introduce them to such business skills as the triple bottom line and how to “do well by doing good.” They will also learn techniques in stress management and personal reflection, as well as have free time to enjoy their new – and old – friends!
