Today we want to give a HUGE shoutout to Tim and Julia Captain of Captain Family Farms who are our 2023 Hey Westminster November grant recipients! Their project is a year-long, ongoing series of monthly farm visits with students and educators – and who have recently partnered with North Carroll Community School where students will learn about methods and production (ecological impact of farming operations), contribute to farm work at their level (animal chores, weeding, planting) and grow some of their own food, to be donated to Food Sunday.

Their vision is that “students and their families will grow in their support of local farms for their own food purchases, and that students will grow in seeing themselves as stakeholders in our community: caring for our land and waterways, building our local economy, and stabilizing what has of late been a volatile and expensive food system. We believe these mindsets are developed early, through a deep resonance with community and culture, and we hope to help students and their families engage deeply with our awesome Carroll County food and farm culture.”

 

Check out the video that we filmed and produced for Hey Westminster for the November 2023 grant recipient Captain Family Farms.
