Community support continues to be imperative to our farm for growing, supplies, farm stand, structures, and cultivating the woodland habitat while educating students and community members of all ages. The open space has beekeeping, fresh food tastings, student environmental groups, teachers, artists, nature studies, and conservation practices. Join us as a volunteer, benefactor, customer, or friend! See you at the farm!
