Dig into intentional action

Tamarack Farm Create Community

Hammering sounds fill the hillside as Tamarack Farm teens build a three-sided cabin, milk cows and cook meals. They focus on their community’s needs as they wash organic lettuce, build rabbit hutches or explore a sustainable way of living.  At Tamarack Farm, teens find joy in work, learn to live closely with a diverse group of peers and find their own voices. At Town Meeting we engage in the heart of what it means to be a community working towards a space where all voices are comfortable speaking and are heard. Anyone can raise concerns. Occasionally, brilliant solutions emerge from our collective wisdom. We also have evenings dedicated to celebrating together, sharing talents at an open mic, playing huge games together, and discussing important topics like race, gender, or sustainable agriculture.

Tamarack Farm Counselor Apprentice Program

The Counselor Apprentice Program is a leadership development program designed for 16  to 17-year-olds to build skills for working here at F&W or other similar organizations. The teens in this program will be held to the high expectations we have of all our staff with an additional level of support and on-going training. Once the Counselor Apprentices have successfully completed the program, they will have the certifications and experience we look for in our summer staff.

"Tamarack Farm values community, honesty, and radical respect. We talk about real-world issues like racism, sexism, and gender identity that help deepen understanding and views of society and learn to work together to resolve group and community problems and master inclusivity. It’s an experience that I’ll never forget."
