A week of farming and tikkun olam for rising 8th–12th graders, sponsored by WHC's TOV Fund, puts “farm-to-table” in a new light for teens.
During this one-week summer program, teens will spend their days working on a farm, whose vegetables are designated for local shelters. Their evenings will include social action projects to help them better understand issues of poverty, food instability, and economic justice. And in between, they will laugh, bond, reflect, and grow. Teens who participated in the inaugural Motzi Fellowship had great things to say:
“I got a feeling of satisfaction knowing the food we harvested would help others.” … “I exposed myself to a new experience and something I never thought I would do.”
