WATER STEWARDS is a team of teens (grades 8-12) with interest in rewarding, hands-on opportunities to work with nature and art in order to solve a real-world problem: insufficient quantity and quality of water on a community farm. Apply by April 5!

 

This life-changing experience will provide teens with skills and knowledge that can be used throughout their lives and around the world. Professionals in ecology, permaculture, conservation and environmental art will guide teens in whole-system approaches.Teens will be inspired by nature to design a regenerative landscape that can capture and disperse clean water to all the right places on the farm. WATER STEWARDS will examine the vital role of water and the interconnections of all living things in the ecosystem. Students will create various art forms to provide structure and function for the landscape and to uniquely express their experiences.

 

The program offers a diverse laboratory to apply and reinforce a teen's school education. Students may be inspired by this program to pursue a wide variety of college and career fields. The program is designed to meet teens where they are in life. For some, it may be self-discovery and trying new things. For some, it may be creating and expressing. For others, it may be applying text-book knowledge to real-life challenges. For others, it may be making a difference.

 

The application due date has been extended to April 5.  The program begins on April 19 and will meet when school is not in session on scheduled dates through November. See all the exciting details and apply at: www.shimmeringlight.info/teen-program-water-stewards
