Genesis Farm: Promoting Sustainable Agriculture Education

Genesis Farm is a non profit organization, located in Blairstown, New Jersey, that aims to educate people of the ecological and agricultural work it takes to preserve the Earth and all its wonders. Run by Dominican Sisters from Caldwell, NJ, Genesis Farm has made it their mission to promote self-awareness of our global crisis through many workshops, energy saving techniques, and allowing people to come together to learn how to maintain the health of the Earth in every way possible. Recently, Genesis Farm joined the transition movement, which is designed to help communities transition from using oil and other fossil fuels to substantial and renewable energy.

Genesis Farm is committed to lessening the demand of peak oil to avoid climate change in order to reshape and rebuild the community. In time, it hopes that with the transition movement and their solar panels it will improve the quality of life, inspire others to incorporate themselves with their great programs, and become environmentally conscious.
