At Common Threads, we are on a mission to connect young people with 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.
Common Threads Farm does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, ability, or sexual orientation. We view diversity as an asset and actively seek to cultivate an environment of inclusion and tolerance.
