Youth

BCC youth get a seed to table experience through Bellevue Farms. Children learn how food is grown, and how it tastes in its raw form as well as when it is cooked. Hands on experience instills an appreciation for farming and what it takes to put food on the table. Creating this connection is important to the future of small farming and keeping people aware of the food choices available to them. In addition, we engage youth in understanding the environmental implications of farming practices and how responsible farming can be a tool in fighting climate change.

Adults

We offer skill building and gardening workshops for adults who want to gain knowledge and be more self-sufficient. Gardening is an excellent way to save money on groceries, get healthy exercise, and promote mental well-being. In addition, our skill building classes teach how to prepare and preserve garden fresh foods, other backyard farming like bee-keeping, and other DIY skills that are beneficial. New for 2020, we are partnering with New Castle Conservation District to bring the Grow It Yourself series to the Bellevue Community Center.
