Save Redwood Academy's Farm

Unfortunately the recent fires that have swept through Napa and Sonoma counties have destroyed our school (Redwood Adventist Academy) and our school farm (What's Up Farm).

What’s Up Farm provides students grade K-12 with a real world agriculture curriculum with hands-on experience growing vegetables. The farm also serves the local community by providing affordable fresh fruits and vegetables grown naturally, without pesticides.

What's Up Farm wants to begin planting for the upcoming rains and moving forward towards rebuilding the farm, school and community. We are hopeful that we can recover quickly and continue providing the community with fresh honest produce while we work on rebuilding our agriculture program and our school.

The school campus will take some time to rebuild, however, the quickest signs of life and a successful recovery will begin with the rebuilding of the farm. As soon as we are cleared to reenter the property, the priority will be to establish the farm project. This will be healing for both the school students, staff and local community to see life is returning.

Everything from farm equipment, greenhouses, auxiliary buildings, walk in coolers, farm tools, fencing, fruit trees and irrigation systems will have to be replaced.

We would be grateful for any help you can provide as we begin this process. Thank You!

(This campaign is intended to raise money to aid in rebuilding the agricultural program and farm, and is organized separately from the campaign benefitting the entire school's efforts. This campaign is organized by Joby Oft, Director of Agriculture and Angeline Weems, Principal of Redwood Adventist Academy.)
