Our mission is nurturing personal growth and learning through immersion in farm life, nature, and local history.
We offer varied programs for elementary through high school-aged children and adolescents that inspire and instruct a new generation to live in awareness and appreciation for the inter-connectedness of all things. Our homestead is our classroom.
"GeerCrest Farm holds a place in this world for an experience which is vanishing; it holds an unspoken reverence and appreciation for nature and life, and it allows the developing child to connect with that in a very deep and personal way."
- Nina Churchill, Portland Waldorf School teacher
