Feasthampton is an Easthampton volunteer group dedicated to encouraging community-wide projects directed toward local food and environmental resiliency. They are opening a Seed Lending Library where ongoing supply of locally adapted, organic, open-pollinated seed, and occasional seed saving and gardening workshops will be on offer.
When community-based learning works, it REALLY works. The diversity of educational programs run by Just Roots Community Farm in Franklin County provides experiential learning for youth of all ages. There are also volunteer workdays that invites families to take ownership of impact that fosters greater youth collaboration, and ultimately building a stronger community!
