This holiday season please consider making a contribution to the School of Adaptive Agriculture. We hope to raise $10,000 during this season of giving to continue to build capacity and increase our reach. These funds will helps us train the next generation of resilient farmers that recent events have shown us are needed now more than ever and grow our local food system and economy in the years to come.
The School of Adaptive Agriculture will launch its 4th year of programs in 2018, including 2 three month sessions of intensive practice and instruction in the science, art and business of producing food and a year-round workshop series. Central to both educational efforts is our working farm (market garden, orchard, flock of sheep & laying hens). In 2018 we would like to expand in the following ways:
