The Green Teens, seven teenagers from Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County’s Green Teen Community Gardening Program, have been hard at work since the end of March. That was when the Beacon teens were handed cameras and film to capture a part of the local food system that touched their lives. Three months and many frames later they are excited to show off what they have created in a public showing of their work, From the Ground Up: Growing Food, through the Eyes of Teenagers.
The opening event is on June 11th from 5-7pm at The Coffee Shoppe in Beacon at 453 Main Street. At 6pm, the artists will introduce themselves and their work, and perform a short piece.
