With all this growth, excitement and media attention lately, the new, local non-profit Navarro Farm
still has a long way to go to reach its goals. They are seeking donations to make their Greenhouse a reality, and at this point, things are dangerously close to them having to pause their programming for the winter as they may not have enough funding and resources in place to get their greenhouse built in time. They are seeking donations so they can make this happen sooner than later so their Farmers will continue to grow year round.
Navarro Farm provides transformative agriculture and animal adventures for children and young adults impacted with special needs, and their families.
