History of Sweetwater Farm
Sweetwater Farm is Experience Learning’s center for small and sustainable farming programming, located in Sugar Grove, WV. It is a 565-acre property that is currently home to an 1800s farmhouse, barn and outbuildings, as well as a more modern and equipped community center. It will serve as the main campus for our farm-based education programs. The property is nestled into a bowl-shaped valley along the rim of the Shenandoah valley. It adjoins the 1.8 million acres of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and contains its own micro-watershed, including several springs, a network of old roads and an area of volcanic activity called an igneous intrusion.
