About Us

Youth + Environment + Work + Community

Greenagers, through its paid employment programs, internships and apprenticeships, engages teens and young adults in meaningful work in environmental conservation, sustainable farming and natural resource management. In the Berkshires and nearby New York State, our trail crews maintain existing trails and build new trails for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Trustees of Reservations, Columbia Land Conservancy and other conservation organizations. Our Farm Apprentices work with local farmers, learning animal husbandry and organic agriculture. Our volunteer teams install front-yard gardens for area families, to encourage home-based food growing.


Greenagers provides employment and volunteer opportunities for teens and young adults in the fields of conservation, sustainable farming, and environmental leadership.

Through vocational-environmental programs and community engagement, Greenagers prepares youth for success in their education and work.

  • Summer 2018

    Through the heat, humidity, thunderstorms, and lightning, local youth, ages 15-20, worked to rebuild stonewalls, cut and clear trails, and construct bog bridges on some of the premier cultural and conservation sites in Berkshire and Columbia County. It was not an easy summer to work in the out of doors, the heat index regularly climbed above 90 degrees and when it was cooler, torrential rains resulted in flood advisory warnings. Despite this, local teenagers got the opportunity to work on local properties, developing a sense of place, a sense of identity, and a better understanding of what makes their home unique.

  • This Month at Greenagers – April 2018

    new agriculture programs

    We are very excited to announce two new Agriculture programs at Greenagers. In addition to our Agricultural Apprenticeships (now accepting applications!), we now offer these two programs for youth and young adults looking to dig deeper and get involved with local farming and gardening and conversing about food justice and our local food systems. Both programs are led by Jen Salinetti, Agriculture Program Coordinator at Greenagers and the co-owner of Woven Roots Farm in Tyringham, MA. read more

  • New Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship!

    Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, Greenagers is pleased to offer a scholarship to a graduating senior or young person under the age of 25 pursuing secondary education or work experience in the sustainable agriculture field. Special emphasis is placed on integrated practices and ecological farming. read more

“I looked at the 13 stone steps we had placed and felt immense accomplishment. Those stones I helped lay would be in that trail for hundreds of years, so I was leaving a part of myself behind on that trail.”

“Working can be exhausting, but at the end of the day, the feeling that you actually accomplished something important to not only you, but an entire community, makes it totally worth it.” —Trail Crew Member

“I learned that good work comes from a place of inner, instead of outer, motivation.”


Greenagers partner organizations contract with us each year to build, clear and maintain recreational trails and parkland in the Southern Berkshires of Massachusetts and nearby Columbia County, New York.
