1. To create our own CSA for families with SNAP funding to have access to free organic produce.
2. To develop a florist program where the students from our multiply disabled classes can learn the skills of the florist business for future job opportunities.
3. To institute a program providing free dinners to senior citizens in need made from the organic produce from the greenhouse by the students in our multiply disabled classes.
All of these programs will run out of our year-round farm stand. The year-round farm stand will be a stand alone building with easy access to the road and its own driveway. The year-round farm stand will serve as a job placement to learn work skills for students in the multiply disabled classes.
