Horn Farm Center for Ag Edu.jpg

Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education serves PA, MD, and DE.

We believe in the power of education. By partnering with local farmers and concerned citizens in our region, we demonstrate ways people can re-establish healthy relationships with natural ecosystems. We are building a community of skilled land stewards who, by building soil fertility and restoring ecological balance to our place on this planet, are better able to feed our community in the face of economic and environmental uncertainty.

The success of the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education (HFC) depends on an active board of directors. A board member of HFC is elected to a three-year term (with a maximum of two consecutive terms) and must be fully committed and dedicated to the mission of the organization and be willing to serve in a fiduciary capacity in order to further that mission as well as the goals of the organization. A board member must also agree to review policy and fiscal matters, advise management, present HFC to the community, and take an active role in the planning and delivery of programs. HFC Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month except July.
