Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Agricultural Programs, Children & Youth, Environment, Environmental Education, Food, Youth Development - Agricultural

Mission: The mission of Sprout Creek Farm is to provide educational opportunities for children and adults using agriculture as the vehicle for integrating diverse subject matter across many disciplines and as the basis for real life experience. Begun by high school teachers in 1982, in response to a growing need for a naturally integrated base in the lives of their students and the growing sense that children were not able to contribute to the development of many aspects of their lives in a meaningful way, these teachers became farmers in order to provide an intense and purposeful learning environment where the contribution of each individual was needed to create and maintain the well-being of the whole.

Sprout Creek is a wonderful organization that has based itself around the learning that happens when children (and adults) work directly with the land and with animals. Their appreciation for the land, as well as for their students and teachers is amazing. I have helped milk cows at 6am and thought that there is nowhere I'd rather be and nothing I'd rather be doing. When helping there, I always feel that my work is doing the most good for the world that I can do.
