Marshview Community Organic Farm is a five acre farm located on Saint Helena Island, South Carolina.  The farm’s origins grew out of a youth-run community beautification project started in May of 2004, becoming the first certified organic farm on Saint Helena in 2007.    

All aspects of the farm are managed by the “Young Farmers of the Lowcountry” with adult advisors.  These young farmers range in age from 10 to 18 and manage the farm from seed to harvest.  They work after school and weekends to cultivate the land, plant seeds, nurture seedlings, plant the garden, weed, maintain and harvest the crops.   

Our farm has ambitious goals:

  • Work with the young farmers to develop skills in the areas of self sufficiency, problem solving, constructive communication, team building and entrepreneurship
  • Produce future farmers of the Lowcountry, equipped with the educational expertise, knowledge and experiences to be stewards of the land and leaders in our community
  • Increase the amount of organic, nutritious food sources in the community of St. Helena
  • Most importantly, instill in our young farmers the practice of “Lovingkindness” 

The farm focuses on training and promoting sustainable agriculture, traditional Gullah style cooking, eating and planting in season, healthy eating habits, and character development.  Gullah history and culture awareness is brought to the community through original plays and performances by the young farmers.
