A Place for Young Farmers

This summer Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island is holding a young farmers program every week day in July and August.

Children ages 8 to 12 will learn about the cycles of planting and harvesting; tend vegetable, flower and herb beds; care for chickens; and enjoy workshops with local musicians and artists. Farmers in Training, ages 13 to 16, are also welcome.

The program costs $400 per week ($320 four-day week of July 5). Children should be prepared to spend the day outside and dress for the weather. No flip-flops!
