The New Ag School

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

Start your garden today. This is the objective set by The New Ag School. We would like to teach the people of Loudoun County how to start their own garden with what they already have and can easily find. The New Ag School has been providing free programs to the people of Loudoun County, such as Saturday On The Farm and also training people to become mentors in agriculture with its program Mentor's Development Training Program. With the new challenge of COVID19, our objective is to make Loudoun's people even more self sufficient and sustainaible. Our program is available online and to make a larger impact and sustain our platform, as well as keep our program going, we need sponsors and domations. We plan to give a starter kit to those that are more indeed so that they can have the necessary materials, such as seeds, soil and planters to be able to start their garden.

 

Our aim is to not only keep Loudoun green but to promote self sustainaibility and self sufficiency. We have promoted agriculture and mentored about 200 people through our programs Mentors Training Development Program and Saturday On The Farm. Our programs are free to the people, as tghey are funded by grants and donations. We need your help to keep moving forward.

Mission

The New Ag School (NAS) seeks to develop a workforce that can meet the needs of the shared economy of Loudoun County. Specifically, NAS Focuses on agribusiness education particularly in the areas of farming, value added process and hospitality.

NAS recognizes and celebrates the following advantages to an agriculture-based economy:

  • exposure to locally grown food
  • reconnection to nature
  • preservation of open space for others to enjoy
  • exposure to how agribusiness, farms and agri-tourism provide value to Loudoun County

NAS is dedicated to training individuals to be equipped, skilled and passionate about working the land and relating with consumers as a career.

We are also committed to the continuous training of our trainers.

Profile

In today’s increasingly urbanized society, many individuals aren’t exposed to the meaningful work of simple gardening, farming, raising animals, or other agri-business activities. In fact, a substantial portion of young Americans are not being “handed down” the traditions of an agriculture based economy, which are vital to our economy.

The New Ag School (NAS) is working to change that in Loudoun County. NAS is an innovative hands-on program dedicated to raising up leaders who understand, appreciate and can do the work needed to support agribusiness today and into the future. NAS provides exposure to authentic farm industry, as well as an introduction of what it takes to run a business – whether a winery, bed and breakfast, or farm.

In order to make a greater impact and expand it outreach, The New Ag School has partnered with Legacy Farms, another organization that uses agriculture as a medium to empower neurodiverse individuals.
