During these difficult times, our top priority remains the health and well being of our community. We are committed to doing our part to slow the transmission of the coronavirus, and will be complying with all local, state and federal recommendations. Our program updates are as follows:
Youth Crews: We are happy to announce that our Youth Crews will be COMING BACK in 2021! We will be running a Spring, Summer and Fall Farm Crew, as well as a graduate-level Market Crew. All needed pandemic precautions will be taken in order to keep our staff and crew safe.
Our Spring Farm Crew '21 will run from March 15th- May 19th, Monday through Wednesday, 3:00pm-5:00pm. We regret that we will not be able to offer transportation for this Crew, due to the pandemic. But we are excited that this Crew will be open to ALL Pittsfield teens, regardless of what high school they go to. Crew members earn a stipend of up to $500, based on attendance. Click here to apply!
We can't wait to see Pittsfield teens out in the farm fields again!
Pittsfield Farmers Market: We are also thrilled to announce that our in-person Pittsfield Farmers Market will be returning in 2021! We are so proud of the achievements of our 2020 Virtual Farmers Market, but our heart will always be with our in-person programming. We know many of you have missed seeing your friends, neighbors and favorite farmers in the Pittsfield Common on Saturdays- so have we!
We will be running the outdoor season of the market beginning in the spring of 2021. As with our Youth Crews, we will be implementing all needed precautions to keep our community, staff and vendors safe. Stay tuned for more details!
