This place is a jewel! We found it as we moved to the Hudson Valley a few years ago. Before learning about their volunteering programs, we first enrolled in their organic garden plot project; I guess we found it a very healthy experience that we decided to get more involved in other tasks little by little. I can say that we have learned so much from other volunteers as well as the people who make of this place a beautiful experience.
