Root to Rise Farm-based Leadership Week for Young Women Ages 14-18

Summary:
We are weaving together hands-on opportunities working with the strong women of this farm, as well as facilitating discussions to explore the socio-political complexities of our our food system and its effect on people and the environment. By integrating expressive arts, movement, sculpture, music, cooking, land-based crafts, and nature skills such as fire and cordage making, we aim to empower young women by realizing their connection to themselves, the earth and each other. We believe that combining the expressive arts, with practical hands on skills, and more theoretical understandings of the systems of the world- that together they provide a powerful grounding force and base of confidence, inspiration and vision for young women to move through the world and affect change. We want to train young women to be leaders in their communities, and to have the skills to critically and creatively think about how to transform the world into a more just, equitable and healthy place. We do this through the food system as our lens, and with our farm and surrounding woods as our classroom of practice and case study. Join us this summer!
