Through the generosity of individuals and organizations such as the family of Nan and John Hughes in memory of their daughter Betsy and the Rotary Club of Woodinville, 21 Acres is able to periodically offer scholarships for classes and camps. According to Gretchen Garth, board chair of 21 Acres, “We are pleased to be able to have these nice resources to help make our programs affordable. We are particularly excited as we pilot our first youth farm camps this summer in partnership with Tilth. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

SCHOOL'S CORE PRINCIPLES
The 21 Acres School offers continuing education classes that focus on principles of sustainable agriculture including those related to not only food and food systems, but also home energy and water conservation, tools for local economic development, and quality of life improvements for our community. We situate much of the learning in our newly green-built Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living.
Core courses and individual elective classes are provided in our three focus areas: Growing, Eating, Living. The 21 Acres School offers a Sustainability Stewardship Certificate Program. Courses and classes are eligible for 21 Acres School continuing education units (CEUs).
