About the Groundswell Center for Local Food & Farming
Groundswell’s mission is to help youth and adult learners develop the skills and knowledge they need to build sustainable local food systems. Our focus is providing hands-on, experiential learning opportunities with real working farms and food businesses in the Ithaca area. Through collaboration with area schools, colleges and universities Groundswell will offer programs of study for beginning farmers, students, community members, and professionals.
Groundswell is an initiative of the EcoVillage Center for Sustainability Education in Ithaca, NY, which is a project of the Center for Transformative Action.
About EcoVillage and West Haven Farm
Groundswell’s main campus is West Haven Farm, an independently owned CSA farm located at EcoVillage Ithaca. EcoVillage is one of the nation’s first ecological co-housing communities and a global pioneer in sustainability education. Groundswell programs build on over a decade of experience in sustainable living and sustainable agriculture at EcoVillage and West Haven Farm. In addition, Kingbird Farm in Berkshire, Northland Sheep Dairy in Freetown, and other local farms and food businesses are part of Groundswell’s “campus without walls.”
