TERI is dedicated to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, and we pursue this mission through our agricultural program by serving as stewards of our natural resources. At the Campus of Life, we will develop innovative, sustainable and organic methods for food and plant production that allow people of all abilities to be active participants in the process.
We understand that, both now and in the future, we cannot exclusively rely on decreasing government funding and the generosity of donors to provide the capital we require to sustain our mission and vision. Our agricultural program includes 6.5 acres of organic farming on the Campus of Life plus an additional 3.5 acres of urban farms. As part of this program, we are developing a plan to produce heirloom vegetables for sale to local restaurants; a line of sauces, rubs, and herbs that can be marketed regionally and nationally; a greenhouse for plants that can be sold at Farmer’s markets and to existing businesses; and the production of drought resistant, local plants for sale to private customers and gardening centers. Our work extends beyond the borders of the campus as we develop a world-class agricultural model that combines the adaptive requirements of individuals with developmental disabilities with cutting-edge, sustainable agricultural practice.
