About

We are a creative and fun-loving nonprofit with a mission to renovate an historic farmhouse, nurture the creative efforts of the community, and support the work of our local artists.

We have negotiated a long-term lease on the Jester Farmhouse and we are receiving substantial help with our renovation efforts from the County government. We are entering a crucial phase of this project as we launch our design plans, our art programming, and ambitious fundraising. This project has strong forward momentum and support, but is still new enough that board members can make a big difference. We will need people who are willing to take personal ownership of this project, roll up their sleeves and make it succeed.
