Supporting education and agriculture in our community
Friends of the Bryn Athyn Farm Mission Statement
The “Friends” exists to promote educational practices that illustrate the correspondence between the principles of nature and the principles of spiritual growth, as set forth in the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. We do this by:
Developing a farm-to-table curriculum for the above mission, which spans all ages and abilities and engages the learner in the full range of experience from soil development, horticulture and animal husbandry to nutrition and the cooking and presentation of food.
Supporting or helping to initiate specific programs within Bryn Athyn College, The Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools, and the Bryn Athyn Church Elementary School, which engage students in serving in this effort, including the support of homeschoolers and other student groups and individuals as well as adult education, where desirable.
Supporting the preservation, maintenance and productive use of land that is appropriate for the above mission.
