Our Farm for Everyone (OFFE)
The CENTER is proud to announce its OFFE program. It is officially the first program to be offered at our own farm located next door to C-Line stables at 3565 Harris Road.
We are excited to be developing programming that uses the farm itself as a therapeutic modality.
Our goals are to:
*Instill pride, ownership and responsibility to those participating
*Encourage learning thru hands on experiences
*Promote physical activity to the level of the participant
*Foster leadership skills while being able to work as a team
*Educate and encourage green practices, love of nature and desire to help the environment
These goals will be met thru:
*Herdsmanship and Husbandry - hard work wrapped in the fun of tending the herd
*Release and Habitat Improvement - giving back to the environment and building futures
*Seed to Table - a gardeners adventure
*Going Green - Exploring how easy it is to help and heal our environment
*Mini workshops - to enhance the above endeavors
We will be starting small, but we intend to engage our entire community thru open houses, hands on opportunities and seasonal activities.
Below are a few of our current critters - in the spring we will be adding chickens, ducks, more sheep and goats and with any luck MINI COWS!!
