The Spring 2013 Sustainable Springfield Growing Kids Veg-U-cation program focuses around sustainable local food production/ gardening (practices that are viable over long periods of time, both environmentally and economically) urban ecology and ecological awareness. Upon successful completion of the program, each student will receive a $200 stipend at the end of April.
The program will be offered nine consecutive Saturdays beginning March 2 – April 27, 2013. Each class will be 1.5 hours long (10:30am-12pm).
Only serious students who have the willingness to learn about urban vegetable gardening will be considered. We welcome students entering sixth grade-senior high school, ages 13-17. To qualify, the youth must:
have transportation to the kids garden site and be available to tend the garden plot on a regular basis( meaning you must be available to weed and water your garden bed at least 4 times a week.
Submit the application below and a 150 word essay about why you wish to enroll in this program and how you will benefit from the experience.
Please note: Preference will be given to students enrolled in a public school in the urban core, (Springfield, Eastside )
The experience you gain in this program may lead you towards an internship/apprenticeship and future employment. It is expected that each student attend all nine classes. If a student misses more than one class, the stipend will not be awarded. Only a limited number of spaces available. If you have any questions please contact Meghan at firstname.lastname@example.org
