Planting seeds of hope for Loudoun’s autistic community
We are beside ourselves excited to be partnering with Legacy Farms this July by donating $1 from every haircut from Salon Khouri Fairfax and Salon Khouri Dulles to this new and budding non-profit. Additionally, we are collecting bags of seeds of the following vegetables for Legacy Farms for their garden project they are building for the Paxton school: broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, mustard greens, radishes, pumpkins, squash, beans or spinach. To thank you for helping with this great project, we will take $1 off your service for each bag up to 5 bags!
Legacy Farms was formed in 2011 by a group of teachers, parents and professionals with a common vision: to create training for meaningful post-secondary opportunities for adults with autism and other developmental and social challenges. Legacy Farms envisions a community of people living and working together on the farm, in a way that will allow them to remain self sustainable and as independent as possible. It is the goal of Legacy Farms to not only teach their participants these skills, but to connect them with the rural community through a variety of outreach programs and services.
Legacy Farms hopes to raise $300k this year to allow them to lease a seven-acre parcel north of Purcellville, which will allow Legacy Farms to provide work for more adults with autism and other challenges. You can learn more about Legacy Farms via their website, or, we encourage you to attend their 2nd annual Legacy Farms Summer Garden Party on August 1 from 6-9 PM. Be sure to visit the Legacy Farms event page for more information.
