Our Mission

Apple Ridge Farm transforms the lives of our community’s underserved children and families through engagement in unparalleled educational, cultural and outdoor experiences.

Our Vision

Apple Ridge Farm grows the wellbeing of the underserved communities in the Roanoke and New River Valleys through the exploration and execution of environmental sustainability and urban agriculture, leadership and success mentoring, and exposure to outdoor experiences.

Our Beliefs

We believe that academic support and success are essential components in positively building self-esteem in youth. With stronger self-esteem, our children will believe in the possibility that they can reach their dreams. Our passion is to reach out to the youth in our communities, offering them a supportive academic environment while helping to close the achievement gap for all children and families in the Roanoke and New River Valley area. Our job is to see them as the amazing seeds of potential that they are and nurture them until they can see that in themselves.
