You’re invited to visit and learn about care farming and how OASIS TLC promotes the inclusion and acceptance of adults with autism in their local communities by establishing environmentally exemplary farm centers that provide meaningful work, healthy and peaceful residences, and community interaction.
OASIS tlc has created a local farmstead model program that offers continuing education, vocational skill-building, employment, and housing, in a local farm setting across the life-span for people with autism. OASIS tlc farms are set up as Agra-Tourism sites that create jobs, produce goods for sale and offer opportunities for community inclusion and interaction.
Bring a dish to share after the tour and connect with other care farmers in the area!
This Care Farming Meetup & Tour is funded by a SARE Northeast grant. We hope that care farmers will feel more connected and supported as we build an infrastructure that includes mentoring, farm tours, and training opportunities for those involved in this work. Our goal is to increase employment and meaningful work opportunities for people with I/DD on farms.
