The power of diversity is immense when we truly respect and value differences. Individually and organizationally we become stronger when we value differences in backgrounds, skills, experiences, race, religion, sexual orientation and wherever difference is alive. This brings fresh ideas and perspectives to our work and lives, challenges our assumptions and makes our lives richer. By valuing diversity, we recognize the differences between people and acknowledge these differences as valued assets.

We strive to build a diverse team, to attract a diverse array of educators, teachers, farmers and participants. The abundance and richness of diversity that mother earth creates is our model in which we aspire to mimic.
