Welcome to The Yard Project
At this point in time we are not accepting donations. Over the three years since the Yard Project was created we have continually evolved the mission. Starting off as strictly farm land conservation, we saw another need to support existing farmers which then morphed into hosting agricultural based community events. We like to think we have made a difference along the way. Given time and resource constraints we are now rethinking our next evolution and seeking out others who would like to be part of it.

The comprehensive new study paints a sobering picture of an increasingly fragmented America, where intimate social ties -- once seen as an integral part of daily life and associated with a host of psychological and civic benefits -- are shrinking or nonexistent.
