Environmental Education

“The earth is the legacy to our children. We owe it to them to teach them how to preserve it better than we are.”

While we are making significant, fundamental changes to protect our environment and preserve the planet, those efforts are not yet a passionate, fundamental commitment by every living being whose existence depends upon the very planet on which they thrive.  Arborganic Acres’ belief is that education is passing along what we know and learn. We can, therefore, focus on the legacy to our children by passing along knowledge of the mistakes we have made, the changes needed to correct those mistakes and the learnings on how to prevent future mistakes that could negatively impact our planet. Equally as important is the effort to instill a spark of passion in our children that will ignite a self-sustaining desire to do the right thing for the environment. Hopefully, they, in turn, will do the same to insure the earthly legacy for their children.

Arborganic Acres is proud to contribute toward that end by supporting an educational program that focuses on the environmental benefits of recycling . . . that which comes from the earth is returned to the earth. A large conference room was included in the construction plans for the main office building to facilitate tailored programs that supplement on-site tours and demonstrations. In-school presentations are also offered.

Our Visits and Activities To Date

2/19/14 - Arborganic Acres Hosts Visitors from Winterthur Museum

Braving the snow, rain and slippery conditions, folks from the Winterthur Museum in Delaware visited Arborganic Acres to learn about the composting process on a larger scale. Arborists and Gardeners dilligently work to maintain the grounds at the museum and utilize some of their own byproducts to make a limited supply of their own carbon-based mulch. We were happy to give them a tour of the facilities and chat about the processes at Arborganic acres.


Winterthur's 1,000 acres encompass rolling hills, streams, meadows, and forests. Founder Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969) developed an appreciation of nature as a boy that served as the basis for his life's work in the garden. He selected the choicest plants from around the world to enhance the natural setting, arranging them in lyrical color combinations and carefully orchestrating a succession of bloom from late January to November. Du Pont translated his love of the land into a unified work of art that embodies a romantic vision of nature's beauty.
