WHO WE ARE
New School Farm began in 2019 when longtime Spokane farmer and our Executive Director, Whitney Jacques, realized there was a gap in the Spokane sustainable food infrastructure network: there were few places for new farmers to get the training they need to set real roots in the Inland Northwest to increase the capacity of sustainably grown, organic, local produce. And when new farmers aren’t setting roots, our communities miss out.
New School Farm is an incubator farm in the heart of Spokane, Washington.
We teach new growers sustainable small-scale farming in an effort to make
our region more sustainable and prosperous.
