HOW WOULD YOU USE THIS GRANT TO HELP YOUR COMMUNITY?
Camphill Village Kimberton Hills (KH) is home to one of the first biodynamic farms in the U.S. and one of the first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the country. Sankanac CSA supplies vegetables to 100+ people who live in the village, as well as over 250 families in the area. As part of KH’s mission to contribute to the wider community, the Sankanac CSA’s goal is to increase its capacity to be an educational resource for people of all ages and abilities who are interested in learning about sustainable farming practices.
Training the next generation of farmers is a priority. Sankanac CSA apprentices and volunteers are fully immersed in an intentional, life-sharing Camphill community, where they live and work alongside adults with developmental disabilities.
A grant from Seeds of Change helps us provide unique opportunities for people of all ages and walks of life to learn to farm alongside people of all abilities, developing a sensitivity for the land and for each other.
