The Dig Kids of Kingston
Posted on 05 September 2012
The Dig Kids: An Urban Farming Program for Youth is in its second year in 2012. Youth are paid an educational stipend to “farm” the Everett Hodge Center Children’s Garden and the Van Buren Street Playground in mid-town Kingston. Created by the Kingston Land Trust in partnership with Kingston Cares (a program of Family of Woodstock), The South Pine Street City Farm and with the support of Kingston Parks and Recreation Department, “The Dig Kids” is charged in working with Kingston youth to grow food, learn farming practices, encourage entrepreneurship, beautification, pride and good health through hands on farming experiences.
