Teaching Love

WITH DEEP CARE FOR THE EARTH.

Joseph and Helen Field opened the doors to the farm,

in Johns Island to educate the youth.

Students have the opportunity to learn about organic agriculture since 2015 when the idea of

Earth Heart Growers started.

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

is what Joseph Fields said. 

Joseph and Helen had become the most beautiful model of hard work, grit, perseverance, patience, and love for children, adolescents and adults.

Earth Heart Growers initial program

"Schools at the Farm"

 was created to offer a bridge between schools and the third generation farm: Joseph Fields Farm, African American owned business, were students are exposed to a meaningful learning experience while enjoying a day of fresh air and food.

"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.
