Join Future Harvest CASA and Red Wiggler Community Farm for the first ever Mid-Atlantic Care Farming Summit on October 16, 2018—Register HERE!

Care farming is the therapeutic use of farming practices for health, social, or educational purposes for vulnerable groups of people.

This full-day summit will focus on care farming for the benefit of individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities. Join us in sharing experiences, talking through challenges, and brainstorming ways to improve the field. You'll leave this event with new connections and a support network for the future.
