Welcome to the White House Farm Foundation!
We are excited about our current projects and realizing the vision for the White House Farm Foundation.
We’re interested in various aspects of how to live more sustainably on the land and use our natural resources wisely.
Our desire is to work with the community and our partners to answer some of the large questions now facing conservation and development.
- How do we live in balance with our environment?
- How can we enhance the landscape to feed wildlife and ourselves?
- Why is it important to conserve land?
- How can we support local economies?
- Do you have an environmental question?
- Questions about our local water quality, forest health; including status of gypsy moth, emerald ash borer or identification of a tree or shrub or insects?
- Questions on invasive plants?
- Questions on upcoming environmental regulations?
We are glad to help.
Upcoming Events – Partner Information Needed: Virginia Cooperative Extension and the Valley Conservation Council are conducting a survey of farmers to gauge what local food infrastructure is needed in the Shenandoah Valley to strengthen the region’s food and farm economy as far as food cleaning, processing and packaging equipment and storage facilities in this area.
