At the intersection of food, soil, climate, farming and water.

Help fund the Gardens @ Michael Fields

Your contribution will help us continue teaching Sustainable Agriculture to beginning farmers from around the world. The Garden Apprentices and Interns live at the institute for the seven month growing season. They work, learn and grow in the gardens – from seed selection, farm planning, best growing practices, business planning to market – we need your help sponsoring sustainable agriculture education.

Sustainable Agriculture produces nutrient dense food, improves soil health and helps mitigate climate change.
