Thanks to our generous donors, we have limited scholarship money available for people whose household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guideline. Please email Program Director Liz Whitehurst for more information.

Note: Unless otherwise noted, our public programs take place at our vibrant working farm in Caledonia, IL. Because this is a working farm and residence, we cannot accommodate unscheduled visitors.
