We believe in the power of education. By partnering with local farmers and concerned citizens in our region, we demonstrate ways people can re-establish healthy relationships with natural ecosystems. We are building a community of skilled land stewards who, by building soil fertility and restoring ecological balance to our place on this planet, are better able to feed our community in the face of economic and environmental uncertainty.
