Every person needs a sense of purpose and belonging. At Valmonte Farm & Garden, children and special needs adults find just that. By cultivating the farm, these important souls connect with nature, learn valuable skills, and practice mindfulness in an inclusive, sensory-rich setting.
We continue our mission of connection by constructing the first child-friendly outdoor classroom at Valmonte Farm & Garden. Thank you for your contribution.
We hope to reclaim or repurpose most of the items we need. We will only purchase a few select items, linked below. If you wish to help with one of those purchases, please donate directly to Valmonte Farm & Garden and make a note that your donation is for the outdoor classroom!
