Food Works Youth Summer Season Ends

The Food Works farm on Sauvie Island is a bustling, lively scene filled with youth carrying out their tasks to operate a 2.5 acre organic farm. This week marks the end of the season for the 20 youth who volunteered (and are paid a stipend) for the 8-week program. Each of these youth will be taking away new-found skills, new friendships and a greater self-confidence that they will bring back to their schools and their communities.

Poem by Hope Partnership Youth, Noah Schultz

Reach Farther

To my friends who reach farther than the rule book suggests I commend you
You have chosen to laugh off no’s and let your desires grow
Knowledge over everything is the drum beating to your life’s direction
Placing you in a state of perpetual development
Others opinions on your dreams fall short because they’re irrelevant
You my friend have found purpose
