Our Mission

High Spirit Community Farm fulfills an essential need for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing meaningful work, a dignified home and a rich social and cultural life.  To that end High Spirit:

 

  • Provides and supports homes where our community members live as a family.

 

  • Directs a land-based work program, offering on the job training in agricultural work and sustainable practices.

 

 

  • Expects our members to be responsible, participatory, considerate citizens of the High Spirit community and the larger world.

 

  • Trains young volunteers to provide care to disabled peers and inspires them to be leaders as respectful, inclusive and conscientious adults.

 

  • Serves as a catalyst for investment in this model of care, community and service.
