Left Foot Organics is a local nonprofit organization helping people with intellectual disabilities and rural youth to gain job and life skills while growing good food for their community. Now in its eighth year, Left Foot offers paid employment experience and is committed to provide the support each individual needs to overcome their challenges and be successful.
On the third Saturday of each month Left Foot hosts volunteers in the morning to come out and help with farm work. The farm then provides a hot lunch for volunteers and following lunch a workshop is put on to provide community members with farm and social skills that are transferable to their everyday lives.
For the month of June workshop Left Foot Organics is excited to host Dominic Corriveau of Ewing Irrigation. Ewing Irrigation is a landscape and irrigation specialist creating healthy, sustainable environments. Dominic will be presenting about water management solutions, agronomic supplies, landscape lighting, water features, hardscape, and erosion control.
Left Foot Organics operates a 5 acre horticultural therapy farm that works to employ people with developmental disabilities in order to give them meaningful, paid employment.
On the third Saturday of every month Left Foot Organics provides free workshops to enable members of our community to take home skills and knowledge about food, farms, and developmental disabilities which are transferable to their everyday lives.
The topic this month is Autism: Come to hear Barbara Young, a Professor at SPSCC, tell her story of working with people with Autism and Aspergers Syndrome. Participants have the opportunity to come for a morning of volunteer work beginning at 10. A hot lunch courtesy of the farm will be served at noon and Barbara Young's workshop will begin at 1 p.m. Feel free to come at any time. Please email - email@example.com - with questions!
