The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it.
— Psalm 24:1

We are getting started on a vision to use the Lord's twenty acres of our campus for an Agricultural Adventure!  We'd love for you to join us!

Senior Kaden Giard spearheads the plan and building of our new greenhouse along with “farmer” and agricultural teacher Pastor Russ Nuss.  Kaden is completing this as part of his senior project. As we put the finishing touches on the building, we will begin growing vegetables to plant in our fields and to sell as vegetable starts.

Preschool students were the first to plant pumpkins for the fall pumpkin patch! We’ll begin planting again in the spring.

First fruits: we're proud of our first cherry on one of the 3 1/2 dozen fruit trees we've planted in the lower field. In front of the trees we've also planted a field of potatoes which have already begun sprouting.

Thanks to donations of rubble, gravel, equipment, and time, we now have a completely re-furbished and serviceable road!

Sixth grade students dig holes in the lower field to test water levels. Their weekly data is being used to support the future fields of produce and give hands-on learning to their science studies.

The Snohomish Conservation District is partnering with our school to provide a grant for restoration of our salmon-bearing stream on the lower property. They have designed a farm plan for us as well and will be providing educational opportunities for our students to be part of the implementation.

Finances:

We now have a bank account line item to receive tax-deductible donations towards this project. If you would like to invest or know someone please contact Pastor Nuss at rnuss@ACSknights.org.

We will need some income to purchase seeds, plants, and a TRACTOR!!! We'll hear back soon about our grant application for this purpose.
