At GeerCrest, many cultures, ways of living and teaching intersect and culminate around the timeless focus of caring for the land and each other. Our farm life experience program inspire a new generation to live in awareness and appreciation of the interconnectedness of all forms of life through immersion in homestead life – walking alongside peers, mentors, adults and elders in a historic setting sharing their work, art, stories and history, craft, food, and celebrations of life.

Modern family farms are now rarely being passed from generation to generation. Moving forward, small farms must be reintegrated into and supported by community, renewing them to an integral – rather than peripheral – role in culture.
