Creating change through action.
Old World Heritage Farm exists to teach children, youth and veterans about the benefits of gardening with non-modified, completely organic seeds and methods. This is done during week long retreats during which the guests stay in our Sioux Tribe replica Tee-Pee's. The true to style tee-pees are donated from all over the nation and built here on site. We are pleased to have partnered with Barre Army Navy Store in Barre Vermont to provide us high quality tee-pees.
We also teach them how to sew garments, blankets and quilts as well as grow, cook, freeze and can foods. They are taught the how's and why's of sustainable living in as many areas as we can get them interested in. Whether it is hands in the dirt or handmade skirts, our goal is to teach them self sufficiency.
We use only Non Genetically Modified seeds and only old world practices to fertilize and protect the crops. The fabrics and threads have either been donated or purchased by the ministry. The food consists of fresh fruits and veggies, either grown on the farm or donated by local growers or organic markets. All at no cost to the children, youth and veterans.
We are very pleased to announce that we have partnered with Barre Army Navy Store out of Vermont to provide another way to support the efforts at Old World Heritage Farm. In returning to the ways of the Native Americans we will leave a smaller footprint on the land wile providing a quiet and interesting place to rest.
Our supporters select and pay for the Tee-pee they desire to donate on the Barre Army Navy Store web site and have it shipped to us. Upon arrival we construct it, take pictures and place a plaque outside the tee-pee to commemorate their contribution.
For those who want to donate for a tee-pee but cannot afford to finance the entire purchase price, you can donate as normal and leave a note with your donation to include it towards a tee-pee purchase. Any ear marked funds are always used for what they have been donated for.
