Aerie Acre is a non-profit farm and garden project located at The Dragonfly Homestead and made possible by the generosity of The Mychal Rushwald Foundation. We believe in local sustainable agriculture and grow fruits and vegetables using organic methods to improve our own diets and to contribute to the overall health of Klamath County. We appreciate the opportunity to share with our community through the Klamath Falls Farmers Market.
Dragonfly students have the opportunity to engage with Aerie Acre on multiple levels. Some students plant seeds in the greenhouse, transplant starts, harvest produce, till the land, make jam, participate with the bee hives and honey, or sell produce at the Farmers Market in downtown Klamath Falls. Through the constant challenge of working with nature and the endless problem solving that farming presents us, we feel that we grow as people in the process.
The Mychal Rushwald Foundation was established in memory of Mychal Rushwald, a kind and caring young man who was much loved by all of his family and friends.
Our appreciation to the Rushwald-Kuskin family who show us how the love and devotion of a family can make the world a better place. – Tikkun Olam
