Greenhorns ally, the Center for Land-Based Learning, is committed to engaging youth in learning experiences on the land that foster respect for the critical interplay of agriculture, nature and society. Founded by Walnut Farmer Craig MacNamara, the organization has three main goals: use farms, ranches and natural ecosystems as educational laboratories for inner-city, suburban and rural high school students; to impart appreciation for where food comes from and knowledge about environmental stewardship; to connect students to their communities while developing leadership skills and the ability to work cooperatively in diverse groups.
