Hawthorne Valley is a place to rediscover our connection to nature, to how our food is grown, and to ourselves as participants in a dynamic social and natural ecosystem. Through active food production, educational programs for children and adults, ongoing social and scientific research, and the cultivation of a vibrant artistic community, we pursue a modern way of living embedded deeply in the natural world. Our work emphasizes the social, ecological, and economic importance of agriculture in our daily lives. Our integrated learning campus sits on a 900-acre Demeter-certified Biodynamic® farm in Ghent, NY, in the Hudson Valley’s scenic Columbia County. Organized since 1971 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, our initiatives include: an early childhood through grade 12 Waldorf school; on-farm education programs; a full-line organic/natural foods and grocery store; a Biodynamic creamery and organic bakery; a mobile grocery market; a 300-plus member organic/Biodynamic CSA; social, ecological, and cultural research groups; teacher education programs; arts initiatives and more.

ESG/Ethical Impact

Hawthorne Valley launched Place Corps, an experiential gap year program. The mission of Place Corps is to cultivate a calling to know, love, and serve our places. This builds on Hawthorne Valley’s nearly 50-year legacy of connecting people to place, to each other, and to their own sense of purpose through hands-on, will-centered learning. Place Corps adds to Hawthorne Valley’s already diverse set of interconnected initiatives that collectively create a holistic ecosystem approach to addressing the needs of our time. Though perhaps unconventional, our model aims to create long-term organizational sustainability by honoring, and mirroring, the complex natural relationships that sustain life on our planet. This reconnecting, or re-membering, remains the heart of Hawthorne Valley’s mission and has never felt more imperative. Our current political, economic, and environmental crises accentuate an underlying anxiety of so many people feeling dis-placed, uprooted from culture with no grounding in meaning or context. More than ever, we need to exercise the social skills of empathy and compassion. We need to access the healing power of the natural world. We need to experience Earth as the school of love.
