First of its kind, the school fuses sustainable agriculture and traditional indigenous food systems as tools to build community and create dialogue around land stewardship for the future. The school program is open to all with curiosity on how to feed a growing population while restoring the land. The program takes place at our 20-acre certified organic working farm on traditional TFN lands. The farm boasts a mixed fruit orchard, a market garden, livestock including chickens and hogs, and incubator plots on which program graduates can launch their farm businesses. The Farm is a gathering place to learn about human scaled alternative food production systems.

The farm also features a traditional smokehouse, manages the land with their hogs, and generates 100% of its electricity from solar power!
