Liberty Hall Farm
The initiative serves as the steward of Liberty Hall Farm at Kean University. The farm serves as an educational resource that provides service-based learning opportunities for the university and surrounding community. Thirty percent of the produce grown at LHF is to be directed to the Shaping Elizabeth partnership and distributed through partner agencies in Elizabeth and throughout Union County.
Farm & Garden Adventures advocate for the right of students of all ages to play, discover and interact in a safe, outdoor farm environment while learning how to garden, harvest and prepare foods they have grown.
Our programs address the needs on our at-risk communities for healthy, locally grown, nutritious foods, as it engages nutritionally-challenged students in curriculum that promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles – directly counteracting the lack of physical activity, poor nutritional habits and lack of nutritional education that is prevalent in low income urban communities.
