HAYville 2012 Program
HAYville, which stands for Harvesting Agricultural Youth, is a Food and Farm Business Incubator program for 12-19 year olds in Caledon and surrounding areas. HAYville aims to foster food and farming enterprise and innovation by empowering youth through hands-on experience in growing, harvesting, cooking, preserving, eating, marketing, selling, business planning and community engagement. Note that HAYville activities are free of charge and some are eligible for Secondary School Community Service Hours.
The HAYville Program is run by the Caledon Countryside Alliance and Eat Local Caledon in partnership with local food and farming facilities – Albion Hills Community Farm, Palgrave Community Kitchen, Inglewood Farmers’ Market and the Caledon Farmers’ Market. The Program is currently funded with a grant from the Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation.
