Community Service

On days that my students work at Clearwater Farm, I have observed improved attendance, behavior and motivation, in addition to reduced anxiety. Students look forward to working at the farm, and they are developing skills and habits that will make them more responsible citizens and more reliable employees in the future.

Whether you need service hours for National Honors Society, Eagle Scouts, church, or court-appointed, we’re the place for you! Clearwater Farm is also the ONLY place where you can get “DOUBLE HOURS” for your hard work! Fulfill your commitment in half the time – only requirement is that you put forth your best efforts and work hard.
