April 2020: While our Program still very much welcomes your contributions, in this time of extraordinary uncertainty, we also ask that you consider supporting our parent organization, the Hawthorne Valley Association. The Association is a collection of different initiatives. Aside from the Farmscape Ecology Program, there is a working Biodynamic farm with an active farmer training program; a K-12 Waldorf School; a program for visiting students from other schools; and a store, dairy and bakery dedicated to meeting the food needs of the community. Some of these programs are facing major budgetary shortfalls given the current situation. This has meant the furloughing of long-term members of the organization. If you would also consider a donation to the Hawthorne Valley Association, please use this page:
