Learning Everyday Abilities For the Future
Agriculture, viticulture, hospitality and life skills training with meaningful purpose,
volunteer and part time employment as the goal.
Four year suggested attendance after successfully completing a readiness evaluation.
This program is designed to help moderate functioning adults develop every day living skills, horticulture and viticulture basics, and relationship building. Suggested 4 year enrollment, with skills assessment before graduating.
We spend each day learning and growing through group exercises (body awareness and physical health), meditation (well-being and presentness), gardening (fine-motor skills and nature awareness), vineyard maintenance, individualized educational skills and every day life skills.
