Growing Green Acres is dedicated to helping people live healthier.

Through education and hands on workshops, we desire to reconnect people with the land and teach sustainable farming and gardening practices.  As stewards of the land, we respect the design of nature and the land we have the privilege to cultivate.  Our goal is to heal the soil and leave the land thriving and healthy for generations to come.


“Each piece of earth is an opportunity to love. We begin by sizing up its potentials, by appreciating its limitations, by asking God what we can do to bring nutrition, order and beauty from this piece of land.”

Apostolic Farming, Catherine Doherty
