To provide hands on learning experiences that connect people and students with the land, food, water and health that will sustain them throughout life.

Our Vision

Our Vision

Through the work at the educational garden we will grow local fresh foods available to school, hospital and local cafeterias. We will train the next generation of beginning farmers whether backyard or large acreage, pass on the valuable knowledge and skills of seed saving and provide an exciting, motivational and hands on way to learn for our adults, students and youth. Through Agri-Tourism, our economically self- sustaining, farm based environmental, educational center would be an integrated model for every school system or community in the nation. In turn this will create a vibrant food economy, healthy community and teach our youth about organic food and farming.
