Farming has become a kind of lost art. Here at Good Earth Organic Farm, we have noticed that in recent years farming is gaining popularity but is still not something that people know much about. For many people today, the knowledge and experience that their grandparents or great-grandparents had about sustainable growing practices has been lost. This distance from our own food that has resulted from a decrease in home grown products has contributed to the obesity epidemic we see today in the US. Today instead, with the popularity and reliance on industrial farming, we live in the reality where peasant farmers feed a large portion of the world.
Donate to the School for Sustainable Agriculture now!
The School for Sustainable Agriculture is the 501c3 certified nonprofit associated with Good Earth Organic Farm. Its mission is to provide information and hands on opportunities for those interested in seeing and learning about sustainable agricultural practices. We want to bring people closer to their food using the farm as a living classroom. We work mainly with school age kids, farmers, and interested individuals or groups in the local community. Donating is a great way to help us share our knowledge with others and accomplish all of the projects that we want to do here. Anything you are able to contribute is very appreciated!
If donating funds is not something that you can manage at the time there are other ways to get involved with the School for Sustainable Agriculture. Contribute to the school by donating your time and knowledge to our community! We are looking to set up monthly gatherings where people can come to learn or share their knowledge about sustainable practices. Topics are flexible and depend on areas of interest but may include things like fermenting, pickling, soil conditioning, tree maintenance, pasture management, and greenhouse construction. Email us if you have some area of expertise that you would like to share or an area of interest that you would like to know more about. Check out our facebook page or subscribe to our mailing list for up to date information about meeting dates and times.
