We're very pleased to welcome 21 Acres to the tour this year. Visitors will be able to tour the center's newly certified LEED Platinum main building, which houses a year-round retail farm market, a commercial kitchen, offices, and spaces for classes, meetings, and events. What's more, visitors can check out the center's (you guessed it) 21 acres of beautiful, productive, permaculture grounds, featuring an 18-acre certified organic working farm. Produce, grains, and other sustainable products from the center's own farm, as well as other nearby small farms, will be available for purchase on the day of the tour.
Here's more info:
The 21 Acres Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living is a nonprofit agricultural and environmental learning center show-casing the agricultural heritage of our region. The Center features sustainable design and technologies as well as ways to maximize the beneficial aspects of fresh local produce and farm products. Supporting the farm and school, 21 Acres features a retail market, commercial kitchen and special event rental space, all housed on the property and within the LEED Platinum Certified green building.
