“Joseph, Helen (his Wife), Alexandra Seaman and I volunteered in the fields starting in springtime of 2016, when this vision first became a reality. We started by taking 15 adolescents to the farm. We saw right away how being in the wild outdoors, working the land, feeding the animals and sharing a meal made the students’ spirit shine. Each time they became more open, more aware and more conscious in nature – just as Dr. Maria Montessori described in her Erdkinder Curriculum. It just makes sense for the adolescents to be in the fields.” Liz Ramirez – EHG Executive Director.
