New Orcas Island Initiative, F.E.A.S.T. (Food, Education and Sustainability for Teens)

Our F.E.A.S.T. Teens seek opportunities to learn in our Island community and, in turn, provide help wherever needed. They will help glean fruits and veggies, build garden beds or herb boxes, help prepare food items, learn water and farm techniques – whatever helps them better understand the workings of healthy food systems and practices.

Under the auspices of Helping Hands Noramise, The Orcas Island F.E.A.S.T. teens have shared their experiences with students in St. Michel de L’Atalaye, Haiti, where a new school garden/classroom has been created by Helping Hands Noramise.

Other F.E.A.S.T. programs are being created in Indiana (USA) and Taiwan, with each program sharing core values while adapting its activities to the experiences, conditions and opportunities of its community.
