Growing Together

Organic Farming Education

Teaching Love

AND DEEP APPRECIATION FOR THE EARTH.

In 2015, Joseph and Helen Field opened

the doors to their organic farm

on Johns Island to educate students

participating in EHG programs. 

"If it's for the children. That's what it's all about!"

said Joseph Fields. 

Joseph and Helen are a beautiful model of hard work, grit, perseverance, patience and love for children, adolescents and adults.

The Earth Heart Growers' program

 was created to offer a bridge between schools and the Joseph Fields Farm, a three generation, African American owned business, where students are exposed to a meaningful learning experience while enjoying a day of fresh air and homegrown & homemade food. 

 

Earth Heart Growers activities at the farm include:

Fields host a Tour through the Farm

Hands on Harvesting and Cooking 

Mindfulness Practices

Building and Crafting

"Life in the open air, in the sunshine, and a diet high in nutritional content coming from the produce of neighbouring fields improve the physical health, while the calm surroundings, the silence, the wonders of nature satisfy the need of the adolescent mind for reflection and meditation."  Dr. Maria Montessori.
