MY Farm Proposal

Mission has submitted proposals to launch a Mission Youth Farm (MY Farm) on the West End of campus!  This farm will engage students, families, faculty, community members, and neighbors in developing the first Urban Agricultural Pathway in the area.  Students will learn the principles of urban agriculture through the farming, cooking, marketing, and distribution of the produce grown on public land, their land.

Mission youth work on the farm!

Thirteen Mission High seniors just completed a three day and two night retreat at Pie Ranch.  This trip was a culmination of their unit on issues of food equity and resource management.  In addition to traditional camping activities (s'mores by the campfire!), students participated in a chicken slaughter and evisceration, daily cooking and pie baking, and some good old fashioned farm work - moving compost piles and laying irrigation pipe.  They came back to school exhausted, exhilerated, and eager to apply more about what they learned to their own lives.  Thanks Pie Ranch!
