Become a Corporate Champion


Your sustained support makes our work possible. For more than six decades, we have touched the lives of nearly half a million students, adult learners, and teachers. Each year, thousands of students engage in hands-on learning through our programs, and thousands more volunteers discover and engage with their local watershed through community workshops and local cleanups. Our historic 330-acre working farm supports robust sustainable agriculture, arts, and cultural heritage programs.

Your support will:

  • Ensure free day and overnight educational programs at our Hard Bargain Farm education campus for public school students.
  • Furnish all necessary scientific equipment and supplies for field studies                                              Download the Sponsorship Application
