“The Dig Kids – an Urban Farming Program” 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.

Formerly a program of the Kingston Land Trust, THE DIG KIDS – AN URBAN FARMING PROGRAM is a new program of Kingston Cares (a program of Family of Woodstock) in partnership with Larrecca Music Management and The Kingston YMCA Farm Project with support from the City of Kingston and the City of Kingston’s Parks and Recreation Department, and made possible by The Alcoa Foundation and generous public support including a donation from Kevin McEvoy and Barbara Epstein.

In 2015, six youth will be hired to work on the Kingston YMCA Farm Project’s urban farm and to manage the Farm Project’s Farm Stand at the YMCA.  The youth will also visit other farms in the area, learn about cooking and nutrition and participate in leadership training.
