To cultivate local connections through agricultural and business partnerships and to provide educational outreach that promotes conservation and fosters community.
The mission of Local 4 Life is built around a passion for education, conservation and community-building. The non-profit was founded by two middle school Science teachers who were inspired to offer hands on learning that supported local farms and broadened their reach beyond the classroom. They recruited a diverse board of directors, advisors and volunteers that consist of farmers, educators, and entrepreneurs. With the help of their expertise, skills and talents, Local 4 Life has hosted events, workshops and activities for all ages that have been centered in four core values- Agricultural & Local Partnerships, Youth Education. Conservation of Resources, and Diversified Community Outreach.
