Our mission is to:

Offer affordable classes in the art of living sustainably and self-sufficiently in an urban environment

Help students forge connections with their food supply, their community, and the natural environment

Inspire and enable a slower, more intentional, more sustainable lifestyle

Empower students and communities by promoting self-determination, self-learning, and self-reliance

Revive the lost arts of the garden, the kitchen, and things done by hand through the teaching of heirloom skills and traditional homesteading crafts
