Programs at the Amador Hill Farm at Women’s Environmental Institute (WEI) reach beyond our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and include Minnesota’s Growing Power, Inc. Regional Outreach Training Center (www.growingpower.org), Organic Farm School and the North Circle Project, a start-up collaboration of organic farmers in East Central Minnesota producing local, organic food and value-added (preserved) products. This year we are also growing food for Organic Valley and secondary markets, Harvest for the Hungry and Community Table Coop. Our farm produces vegetables and fruit, and includes a 7.5 acre apple orchard. Both the farm and orchard are organically certified through MOSA.
Our rural community resource center offers a small group retreat space, workshops, classes, festive events, policy research and advocacy, environmental and women’s health education, leadership training and of course organic farming! WEI is located near Almelund, MN about a one hour drive north of the Twin Cities, between North Branch and Taylors Falls, MN. The Women’s Environmental Institute at Amador Hill (www.w-e-i.org) is an environmental research, renewal and retreat center working for environmental justice and agricultural progress.
