Mission

"Changing One Person, One Family, One Community at a Time" for growing their resource to improve their finances. The old Chinese Preverb that says, "Give a man a fish you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime."

Description

We have an urban farm where we teach all styles of gardening. They can work along side us and take produce home or we can help them learn how to grow at their home the style of gardens that will work best for their situation. Then when the produce come on we will teach them how to cook from the garden, put food up for the winter with canning, dehydrating, fermenting and other methods of preserving food. We also help them start selling their produce at farmer markets, grocery stores or wholesale accounts. We will help them do added value products and labeling for them also. In the education center we also teach art classes to kids and adults; drawing, painting, art history, crafts and floral design. In the next to years we will be adding classes in high school math, writing, science, ceramics, sewing, jewelry making and much more.
