She will then be joined in Middleburgh by area farmers and youth participants from The Brotherhood / Sister Sol, a New York City based not-for-profit that provides comprehensive, holistic and long-term support services to youth who range in age from eight to twenty-one.  The Senator will tour a "high-tunnel" to learn how crops are grown throughout the winter months continuing to supply the food chain year round.

The youth participants from The Brotherhood / Sister Sol are a part of a program to encourage good nutrition, teach about sustainable agriculture and implement a new initiative around urban farming.
