Learning New Skills

Each day, our participants and staff work together on a variety of farm chores and projects as we develop essential skills such as focus and teamwork. Our emphasis is on process rather than product.

Building Community

We spend time together participating in activities such as a daily walk as well as outings outside the farm. We love being part of our larger Kalamazoo community!


Come be part of our inclusive, encouraging, and welcoming community. We love making new friends and connections here at AACORN!

Donations Welcome!

Have any ball jars hanging around and need some place to take them? Consider donating them to AACORN! We create all sorts of canned goods as part of our program with our farm grown produce.
