ABOUT ENVISION ACRES FARM
Envision Acres Farm is a fully-functioning farm that exists to educate, employ, and empower our local refugee community while developing and training missional leaders creatively through agriculture.
The foundational objective of Envision Acres Farm is the development of refugees from our Clarkston community in order to provide holistic care and share the love of Jesus. In our context, holistic care can be identified in our mission statement as educating, employing, and empowering our local refugee community.
EDUCATING: It is our desire to teach skills that are rooted in agriculture and in business practices for further growth in our context or growth in other employment opportunities.
EMPLOYING: We desire families and individuals to be positively impacted by the healthy and safe work environment that we will provide in addition to proper salaries.
EMPOWERING: Above all, we desire to provide community, purpose, and access to Jesus for all who are impacted by this farm.
