Farm and Ecology
The RE farming and ecology program teaches youth about sustainable agriculture and the natural world, including growing and harvesting crops, permaculture design, soil biology, and food forestry. This helps them connect with nature, improve their physical and mental well-being, and work towards food justice in underserved communities.
Our farming and ecology program aims to teach the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers how to grow, plant, harvest, and preserve food in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way. The program also includes hands-on education in permaculture design and systems, soil biology, food forestry, and agroforestry, giving young people the skills and knowledge they need to establish food justice in underserved communities.
For many youth, especially those living in underserved communities, this program offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature, learn about the beauty and importance of biodiversity, and build a foundation of self-sufficiency. By learning how to grow their own food and understand the impact that agriculture has on their health, environment, and community, they can create positive change in their own lives and the lives of those around them. In a world that is increasingly facing food insecurity and the effects of climate change, it's essential that we empower the next generation with the tools they need to make a difference.
