The Stone House is committed to helping be a part of a local food economy that gives makes good, healthy, organic food accessible to every member of our community.
The organic food movement has often left questions of affordability, accessibility and privilege unconsidered. We are committed to keeping these priorities at the forfront of our efforts to support a food system that functions for all.
We are doing this through local community conversation and organizing as well as the building of a youth program designed to create food justice leaders in our local low-income communities and communities of color.
This summer we piloted our first youth program as a weeklong experience of education and training around food justice called Ground Up!
It was an amazing opportunity for all who participated- youth and adult- to learn and reflect upon our relationship to food and food systems.
more to come…
For now, check out our recent videos from the Ground UP! youth program this summer:
This spring we will begin an expanded version of Ground Up! that will include a 6 month internship at The Stone House as well as strengthened leadership training.
Stay tuned as we unveil the newprogram in the Spring of 2010!
