Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Blackwood Educational Land Institute is a teaching farm on a quest to model the indispensable role of restorative food systems in all our lives. Together we can co-create better ways to grow and source food, eat and live--restoring natural systems, public health and animal welfare, and celebrating all it means to be human!
As a non-profit, we seek to:
- Explore and practice restorative agricultural techniques to inspire and prepare the next wave of farmers and ecologists
- Teach a strong work ethic to youth, as they learn where their food comes from and how important healthy food systems are to their lives
- Provide programming, special events and tours of our model farm to cultivate awareness about how restorative food systems are a critical tool to help solve our environmental crisis
- Demonstrate how essential it is to balance food production and land preservation
