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.

Aaron Snow is one of our great new volunteers. As a business owner in New York and a farm kid himself, he is choosing to "intern" with AntFarm to learn how Sandy and our community works together. Choosing to give his time without pay is a sacrifice. Currently Aaron is living with a friend in Portland. He would like to live in Sandy and be close to all of the AntFarm activities going on. Do you or someone you know have a room where he can stay at night? He is a hard worker and a great friend of Sandy. Please call us at AntFarm at 503-668-9955 if you can help AntFarm and Aaron out! Thank you!!! ... See MoreSee Less
