Learn more about all Shanti Farms has to offer!
Yard Corps is an outdoor work crew division with trained youth participating in growing food in our new high tunnel and Shanti Community Garden. We also conduct numerous outdoor maintenance chores on city vacant lots, private residences, churches, and local businesses. About a dozen students and elders participated in our first time effort to work outside. Some of the services we provide are: mowing, weeding, leaf blowing, tree and bush trimming and planting. We also participated in farm chores, like barn and barnyard cleaning.
Even with our older students we spend a little time keeping our students up on their school ‘smarts’ by integrating summer classroom work– primarily in math, reading and writing–into our daily routines. Credentialed tutors work with the students to get a jump on and to stay ahead in their studies.
