Common Threads Farm is on a mission to connect young people to healthy food through hands-on, seed to table educational experiences.
The “Common Thread” throughout our programs is a commitment to:
**Food competency (knowing how to grow and prepare healthful, delicious food)
**Food literacy (understanding how our daily food choices impact the health of our bodies, our communities, and our environment)
**Food justice (making sure that there is enough healthful, culturally appropriate food accessible to all)
**Youth empowerment (we understand growing food as an effective way to develop confidence and self-esteem)
We cultivate all of these through joyful, purposeful cooking and gardening experiences.
