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.

“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.
