Wild Willow Farm & Education Center
Our non-profit educational farm, Wild Willow, provides opportunities for students of all ages to learn about farming in a way that respects people, wildlife, and the planet. School aged students are invited to participate in our field trip program while older students are are able to learn farming skills through our workshops and courses.
