What is AntFarm?

AntFarm became a non-profit organization in 1997 with a dedication to help youth and families develop health, happiness, and a deeper sense of hope through meaningful, purposeful and enjoyable life activities. For over 16 years we have supported youth in being stronger individuals whom are civic minded. We believe to strengthen the character and integrity of youth will support our community. Our programs have evolved from need and have now proven successful. We have indoor classrooms and outdoor classrooms of experience. Homework, hiking, artistry, baking bread, building trails, gardening… these are a few of the activities we do.

AntFarm is built on community collaboration with no barriers. We work together to help in whatever way we can. It has been an amazing experience to witness young and old work together to help each other. Whether it is through CommunityConnect and helping senior citizens or growing food in the garden and distributing tons of food to those in need, AntFarm is consistent in helping with a smile and respecting all.

Our programs have evolved from hard work and with community support to make positive impact to our youth, families and community. There is no single factor that creates success at AntFarm; rather it is everyone working together to accomplish our goals. We continue to be thankful for the hundreds of hours of volunteer support, the amazing depth in the developing relationships, and the selfless service in helping others.

We enjoyed a nice AntFarm hike this afternoon. Since it was smoky we decided to stay close to home and keep it short. We hiked the Sandy River Trail and got to see the great work done by the AntFarm Youth Corps in constructing the North Loop Trail this summer. Thanks for hiking with us today Alexia, Patrecia, Brandon, Susan and Paul! ... See MoreSee Less
