Friends of the Bryn Athyn Farm’s Mission:
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 through the following efforts:
We are developing a farm-to-table curriculum to help promote both educational and spiritual growth. This curriculum, that spans all ages and abilities, engages the learner in the full range of experiences. This includes not only soil development, horticulture, and animal husbandry, but also the nutrition, cooking and presentation of the food.
We are supporting and 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.
