The 501 (c)3 non-profit mission of Snipes Farm and Education Center is to model and teach sustainable farming, build community and reconnect people to the land.
Snipes Farm Day Camp is likely their most impactful education program, where children unplug from technology and plug into nature. They explore the woods, garden and creek, and make special friends through science, games, art and cooking.
Last year an outpouring of care by individuals and businesses, as well as grants received, helped 30 children attend camp on scholarship. Donations for scholarship for their 2017 season are already coming in, and they hope even more children in need will be able to attend Farm Camp this summer.
Their Camp Open House and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Open House are coming up soon with an opportunity to tour the farm and meet the staff.
