Working hard to make healthy food accessible
I graduated from Purdue University with academic honors in 1999 and continued my education at Florida Gulf Coast University Masters Program in Education. I started this program because I wanted my son to have access to alternative education that would nurture his spirit in a loving, nurturing environment. With my partner Jerome’s support and guidance, we have been able to bring this farm to life.
I believe our children should have lots of fun while they learn to grow food and am dedicated to providing a safe space for them to explore. I’m originally from Lourdes, France, but in the US for over 25 years. As a passionate vegan, I am happy to grow food that feeds our bodies and spirits. I’m also a professional percussionist, leading drumming class and performing in the B432 Band.
From Our Director
” Creating this space for children and families has been a huge blessing in our lives. My son loves to learn now thanks to the environment we co-create here. “
