Off Course

Off-course sustainability has been focused on introducing environmentally-conscious programs centered on innovative enhancements to our daily operations. Program principles we employ are green space creation, resource consumption, waste diversion, biodiversity, and education.

Initiatives

    • Farm is managed with biodynamic practices such as IPM methods, natural and organic inputs, crop rotation, and companion planting.
    • First year produced over 2,000 lbs of produce.
    • Local biosolid compost utilized in raised beds.
    • All plants are started from seed onsite.
