Summer Green Team: New Format, Same  Great Impact
Jessica Horton, former Green Team member
Green Team 2014 in 'So Fresh' track
and current Clark University student has been spending some time with Green Team as part of her Forest Foundation internship this summer. Recounting her time on Green Team, just several years ago, she notes how by organizing the youth's time among three tracks they are now able to accomplish more and get a more varied experience.

The group of 30 youth are divided into cohorts of 10. The young people split their time among three tracks: 'So Fresh', which focuses on growing fresh produce and selling at our Farmers Markets or donating it to Bread & Roses, 'So Green', which concentrates on environmental stewardship and, 'So Connected', the newest track which assists GWL with outreach and community education.
