On a crisp, sunny day in November, NSSA’s Adult Clients went to nearby Elija Farm to help with garlic planting. They started with a little exercise by walking around the planting fields, stopping at different spots along the way to smell herbs and identify different plants. They then all donned gloves and took turns planting garlic bulbs in the freshly-tilled soil. Many hands made quick work of the big job.

The ELIJA Farm offers opportunities for innovative, farm-based vocational programming for differently-abled individuals, and our Long Island community. Since 2016, NSSA Adult Services Program participants have helped with farm tasks, taken meditation classes and participated in healthy cooking presentations at the farm.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their work in the beautiful sunshine and we expect to be invited back in the spring to help harvest the garlic crop.
