Land Stewardship

LandStewHS.jpgConnection to the land and its inhabitants awakens interest and responsibility. As part of the Land Stewardship Program, ninth grade high school students complete a practicum in collaboration with local farms or in campus projects on our 40+ acres of environmentally-protected agricultural land.

Students in any grade may take on individual work in cultivation or animal husbandry, or take part in community service projects that support the program.

The twelfth grade main lesson in sustainability focuses on sustainable food production and takes students out into the greater community to experience the connection between local efforts and world-wide impacts.
