  The Learning Farm is dedicated to protecting our local food source by empowering every member of our community with access to resources for production, preserving, and preparation of safe healthy foods. From farm to table. 
      Open to the public for learning purposes we hope to encourage people to use the resources available to them.  Improving the quality of our environment by protecting our local food source through education and example, guiding people to use the greatest resource available-
Themselves. 
       The farm design will be more like a city park verses the traditional farm atmosphere.  Thus allowing everyone to enjoy the garden, elderly, small children, and the farm will have several handicap accessible raised beds.  Many types of growing methods will be exhibited.  Raised beds featuring bio-intensive and square foot gardens.   Traditional in ground row crop, in ground raised beds.  Container gardening, and small space examples. 
       The greenhouse will have hydroponics as well as vertical farming. Introducing people to many methods of growing vegetables verses big land and tractors.  90% of the work on farm is done by hand, practicing all sustainable methods.  The farm will cover all aspects of farm to table.  To include soil conservation, compost and soil building, irrigation and water conservation.  Introduction to lunar planting cycle, frost and planting dates, growth cycles.  Seed identification, direct seeding, flat seeding, growth cycle and seed saving. Companion planting for bug control and nutrient properties. Harvest and storage of vegetables.  
       Special attention is given to heirloom vegetables, native vegetables in our area and perennial vegetables.  Areas on farm that are not dedicated to growing seasonal vegetables will  host a permanent edible landscape. 
         As a learning farm everyone will be encouraged to participate in all activities, the farm will be open daily to everyone.  Scheduled workshops will be held on various topics to included but not limited to starting seedlings, bugs, companion planting, harvesting, and storage of produce. We also host exemplary seminars for farmers, emphasizing  the benefits of all natural sustainable growing.
        Farming with all self-sustainable practices.  Seeds are planted, vegetables are harvested, and seeds are saved for next planting. The USDA's standards require that farmers produce organic foods with methods that maximize soil health, conserve water and reduce air pollution. Certified organic farms cannot use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or hormones.
