Farming Status and Plans

Farming status:

Part time

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I have ducks and chickens, pheasants, and vegetables. I am looking to expand my farm. For one, I would like to use it as an educational farm for farmers, students, children, governemnt and industry folk, etc. The educational workshops and lecture will be based in  understanding, conserving and building healthy soils. This would be the farm liason center for the NYC Uran Soils Institute-where rural, suburban and urban farmers can share skills, and resources. The farm would also develop a native plant center, with soils being at the foundation of its education and public workshops. I am looking for a lease to own or purchase.
