To facilitate the enjoyment and understanding of Southwest Florida nature and history, to foster responsible stewardship, and to promote environmental awareness.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit We promote research, preservation, and education of Southwest Florida Natural & Cultural History. Our programs serve to reconnect children with natural systems and encourage conservation and sustainable lifestyles. This connection with natural systems, coupled with an understanding of the need to operate in a manner consistent with these systems, creates confidence and awareness in the participants. As they interact with farm animals, observe the workings of nature: pollinators, soil organisms, and beneficial insects, and understand the limitations of natural resources they take away a new world view. This happens for adults as well, particularly as they take classes at Crowley Folk School in basic skills "that never lose their usefulness". We continue to support our small local farms with research and consultations. We also observe the joy seniors express as they remember a simpler time swinging on the porch swing of our "living homestead museum" and watch chickens scratch in the yard. Our goals for the current year include building memberships (up significantly from January), build student participation in our folk school, continue research and support of local small farms, and produce food for resale. Building bridges between Sarasota counties rural and urban communities continues to be a focus. Our founder, Jasper Crowley, believed that a solid connection with nature and natural systems, as well as understanding how our food is produced and the importance of sustainable and conservative practices in food production, built character and confidence in participants. We work each day to further this mission.
