Herring Gut is now accepting applications for the First Work Experience program. This program is a summer work experience for local teens. Teens will learn to be responsible employees while earning money and participating in a safe summer activity at the Herring Gut campus in Port Clyde. Eligible teens must be between the ages of 13-15 and go to school in RSU #13 or live in the district.

Throughout the summer, teens will work in the gardens planting, weeding, and harvesting vegetables as well as maintaining our aquaponics greenhouse. Once a week, teens will manage a farmstand to sell the vegetables they grow. They will also provide public tours of our aquaponics greenhouse. Teens will be introduced to topics ranging from sustainable food sources, gardening techniques, responsible money management, and how to search for a job after this program is finished.


Applications are due on Friday, April 11 and can be emailed to abrasili@herringgut.org or mailed to PO Box 286, Port Clyde, ME 04855.  Applications are available at the following webpage: http://herringgut.org/summerprogramsdetail.html?id=1
