Long View Farm Educational Sanctuary is a new and innovative non-profit committed to working at the local level.
Our vision is a world of educated and skillful leaders. Long View Farm is "Planting the Next Generation of Leaders" by using experiential education, leadership skill development and arts integration. Long View Farm brings together Food Justice, Youth Leadership and Urban/Rural Farming Partnerships. Many organizations address one issue at a time, but Long View Farm uses education about small scale farming as a method to address the way these issues intersect. Long View Farm sees young people as capable and innovative. Our focus is squarely on leadership skill development and service learning is central to our work. Long View Farm will actively use social media to communicate with youth and we will bring the arts to the farm, weaving together creativity and experiential learning. Picture theater created by youth in the barn!
Long View Farm’s vision is a community where people are educated to be skillful leaders.
To accomplish our vision, we engage people in learning about small scale farming at the local level.
In planning and decisions, we hold respect, learning, community, and sustainability
as our guiding values.
This is a wonderful time for the launch of Long View Farm, and we are excited to build partnerships with other committed individuals and organizations. We are currently looking for additional board members, mentors and interested farmers and funders. Please contact Jodi Tharan, M.Ed. at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
