Summer Farmternship 2018

Roots for Peace Summer Farmternship Program was held from June 19, 2018 – August 1, 2018. Youth worked with Crystal Gonzalez from American Friends Service Committee’s Root for Peace Program as they explored issues that impact the health and wellness of our Community.  The Youth assisted with the building of the new community farm site located across the street from All Peoples Community Center. Youth enrolled in the Farmternship also assisted with the design and painting of the Mural located inside the new Community Farm. On August 1, 2018, Youth held a Mural presentation for Community Members.

We encourage all young people between ages 15 to 18 who identify as POC (people of color) and are interested in building something better for our neighborhoods to apply each Summer to the Roots for Peace Summer Farmternship Program. You can contact Roots for Peace on their FaceBook Page. Farmternship is a project by the American Friends Service Committee’s Roots for Peace Program.
