We’re adding a stretch goal of $2,500! Thanks to your generosity, we’ve closed in our goal of $2,000 quickly. Once we’ve built a home for our chickens and purchased supplies to take care of them, we know we’ll need funds for ongoing maintenance and care. Thank you!

We hope you are enjoying Cycle Adirondacks 2017 and your stay in the Schroon Lake community! This is a great place with great people. Thank you for taking the time to consider our new Farm to Table program for your donations.

The goal of this new agricultural program is to help students understand where their food comes from and how they can use the Earth to become self-sufficient and responsible consumers.

The centerpiece of our Farm to Table program will be the construction of a chicken coop, not far from our playground and the future camping site of Cycle Adirondacks.

Our new coop will be used as a study lab for raising and understanding livestock.  Along with the other facets of our Farm to Table program such the construction of raised garden beds and the implementation of a composting system, we hope to instill and teach a lifelong passion for gardening and farming, and responsible use of the land.

Specifically, your donation will help to provide our students with:  A NEW CHICKEN COOP, and

  • Materials for chickens
  • Seeds
  • Soil
  • Pots
  • Hanging baskets
  • Indoor Grow Labs
  • Cold frame construction
  • Additional Raised Beds

Thank you for your consideration in donating to our Farm to Table Initiative at Schroon Lake Central School!

Cycle Adirondacks, Adirondack Foundation, the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the Glen & Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation are teaming to help the three host communities of this year’s Cycle Adirondacks raise funds for a community generated project.
