Hawthorne Valley Association (HVA) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization promoting social and cultural renewal through the integration of education, agriculture and the arts. We are committed to environmentally sound land management as the basis for sustainable economic success. By exploring the dynamic relationships among education, agriculture, the arts, economics, and science, Hawthorne Valley hopes to foster sustainable forms of human endeavor that enhance the quality of life for ourselves and for future generations.

Through the production of food, the integration of people and landscape, sensitive land stewardship, the education of children and adults, the offering of cultural enrichment, and scientific inquiry, HVA advances its mission while providing a healthy social environment for those individuals who work, live and visit here.
