Advent Home Learning Center has expanded to include Advent Home Farm. The school increased the production of wholesome vegetables for students, staff, and the nearby community.
But there’s a special benefit for teen boys with ADHD, ADD, bipolar, and other emotional and behavior problems. Outdoor education—working in the fresh air and sunshine—is very therapeutic. It helps with the frustration, anger, or depression that some of them experience.
They also develop a sense of satisfaction and usefulness in knowing that they are helping to provide nutritious food that will benefit them and their school. As we are planting quality vegetables, one seed at a time, we are also helping heal the lives of at risk ADHD boys, one student at a time.
