Orkestai Farm is turning FIVE YEARS OLD and to celebrate we are expanding on and off the fields! A Greenhouse! A Community Center! New Programs in Farming and the Arts!
ORKESTAI FARM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Oyster Bay, NY.
Orkestai Farm is a unique place where people with autism and other developmental (dis)abilities come to grow food for their community through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Orkestai Farm provides inclusive* hands-on education in sustainable farming for teens and adults in addition to workshops in the Arts. Our programs foster healthy living, social engagement, and creativity. Our members learn to grow food and feel empowered and confident about who they are and what they can achieve.
* Orkestai Farm celebrates diversity and has experience working with people of All Abilities. We are an inclusive program that welcomes all regardless of race, color, religion, sex, or disability. Orkestai Farm is open to the public.
In order to continue with our mission and expansion, we are asking for your support.
YOUR DONATION WILL HELP US:
Found our brand NEW Community Center so we can expand programming year round and have an indoor space to keep us dry when it rains!
Plant our very FIRST orchard to grow fruit!
Expand our infrastructure : build a greenhouse to extend our growing season, add arched trellises to grow vining plants, a fence to keep out our furry friends, and a walk-in cooler to keep our harvest even fresher.
Create a scholarship fund for farmers in need to learn organic farming and arts in a supportive environment.
And many more farmy things!
