“Working on the land is where I truly feel alive and vibrant. Where the stresses and little irritations of the world disappear, and the peace and joy of doing something with meaning and purpose nourish my soul to its very core.”
-Anthony Damiano, 2021 Land Steward Training Program Student
The work that we do at the Horn Farm Center is transformative. Not just on the land, but in the minds and hearts of the people we serve. In the next 3 years, we will train over 150 new Land Stewards, equipping them with the skills that they need to bring healing and transformation to their own backyards and communities.
Training 150 land stewards is just one of several new strategic goals.
Following a year-long planning process and the devastating farmhouse fire in 2021, we are moving boldly towards a new vision for the organization. With our new vision, we will:
- Grow and diversify the Horn Farm Center team
- Improve and expand facilities, building as sustainably as possible
- Transition to perennial agroforestry systems inclusive of animals
- Become completely carbon neutral by 2028
- Train 150 new land stewards by 2025
- Cultivate a regenerative community of learners and practitioners
- Become a bio-regional destination for transformative experiences, ecological learning, and earth-focused skill-building
- Expand our reach by 25% by 2024, establishing a unique brand, educational content, and communications plan
- Foster an organizational culture rooted in relationships and values
- Create regenerative organizational systems and increase capacity to support the organization’s growth and transformation
Our goals are ambitious, especially as we navigate the challenges of rebuilding. But we know that, together with your support, we can accomplish all of these goals and more.
