We’re a farm. We love our animals and we love our crops. But, truth is, we really love our kids who are the ones who make it happen!
2015 has been a banner year for The Urban Farm at Stapleton. Our recent FarmFest attracted over 1,000 people! Our 4H club has doubled in size. Our staff has stabilized under the leadership of new Executive Director Mike Nicks.
Our mission is to educate children. And, to that end, we utilize our farm as a campus to engage children in real world problem solving skills, increased personal confidence and an excitement for learning.
Our Farm-School Partnership program has improved and expanded, allowing an increasing number of students from both elementary and middle-schools to engage in a variety of farm-related learning and service learning experiences.
Our equine education program continues to mature and develop kids who have a powerful sense of the importance of responsibility toward animals and each other.
Our husbandry program, in collaboration with 4-H, continues to provide kids an opportunity to responsibly raise, and if desired show, their own animals.
Our horticulture program has focused on alternative growing methods and offers kids a wonderful window into hands-on plant science. Work has already started on the rebuilding of our present hoop-house into a more environmentally sustainable greenhouse.
We hope that you will make a generous one time or monthly contribution to The Urban Farm at Stapleton before the end of 2015
By doing so, you will be growing the greatest crop: bright, engaged and knowledgeable children! They are the ones in whom our future resides. Thank you for your consideration!
