Here's a small sampling of our work and impact we've helped create over the years.
The Hampstead Institute has served different roles over the past decade. Originally created in 2008 to foster culture and learning within our community, the Institute saw the need to focus its mission to include education in the fields of design, development, wellness and sustainable living. We hosted New Urbanist leaders for workshops and lectures on subjects from sustainability and architecture to organic farming and literacy.
EAT SOUTH and The Hampstead Institute
As time went on, the Hampstead Institute founded EAT South, which we helped grow into its own entity, and established a long-term relationship of support with the Montessori School at Hampstead in its hands-on curriculum at our farm and throughout the Hampstead community.
The present, building toward the future
Today, we continue to focus on educational and local food endeavors with the Montessori School at Hampstead and Hampstead Farm. We promote the support of other non-profits throughout the region including the Montgomery Area Food Bank, the YMCA of Greater Montgomery, and the Montgomery Humane Society to name a few. Additionally, the institute promotes the benefits of culture, design and civic art within community. These efforts are visible through arts oriented events and support for the arts and artists throughout Hampstead.
