My 11-year old son is interested in farming. He has a good head on his shoulders and goes to a great private school in Houston, Texas. He’s a bit of an outlier in that his peers want to be doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, etc. Anyone aware of pre-college/summer programs perhaps applying mathematics, logistics, etc to farming on a larger scale to a working farm. For many years he attended a great day camp program at Wolfe’s Neck Farm, a small organic farm in Freeport, Maine. I’m researching opportunities on farming that scale up and apply planning, logistics, math, maintenance, etc. Any suggestions would be invaluable. He currently volunteers on Saturdays at a local community garden connected with Urban Harvest in Houston.33 replies
