Plants to Plates Initiative

Summer Farming Program

Plants to Plates Initiative (PTP) is a sustainable farming program that offers participants the opportunity to engage in innovative farming practices. We will combine traditional farming methods, handed down through generations of farmers, with modern agricultural techniques. 

Our investigations will include the impact of climate change by utilizing controlled environment agriculture. Limited spaces farming will be  investigated through various types of vertical farming techniques. 

This summer camp is available for students in grades nine through twelve. While we welcome current  participants of Future Farmers of America program all high schoolers are welcome to apply. Successful participants will grow crops from seedlings to harvest, and have the opportunity to sell their produce at a farmers market.

A portion of this program is reserved for third through eight grade students to participate as part of the Summer Fun Camp. Both groups will work together to plant, care for and harvest crops for sale. 

Graduates of the program will receive a backpack filled with school supplies, tailored to their grade level. Additionally, they  will be given a stipend for participation as a token of appreciation for their dedication to the program.
