In Support of Clemmons Family Farm
A recent state investigation reported discrimination against Clemmons Family Farm, a neighboring African American owned farm and education nonprofit. We stand with them and are dedicated to cultivating learning for building a just and safe community together.
Farming in a Changing Climate
To meet harvest yield goals and respond to climate change, we’re dialing in our practices to better manage the micro-environment around the plants and build resilience in the whole system through soil health.
