Interview with Community Leaders, The Wasiks
Local food and responsible land management education benefits us all. Hear more about why the Wasiks’ believe that nature-based learning student experiences make an impact.
At the farm, I work alongside students from within my same school district but not from my school. They were really cool and we live in the same community. The experience made me think differently about how I judge others.

Students who engage in their community are more likely to help lead and improve their community in the long term.
Greg Geiger, Educator
Being on the farm is a therapeutic experience. You find a responsibility in yourself to care and maintain things you grow so that the plant stays healthy. I want to continue doing this so I can help others secure their basic food needs and help the environment.
