The Brice Institute supports the following projects and organizations in organic farming and gardening and environmental education:
Aldo Leopold Foundation
Established in 1982 by the five children of Aldo Leopold, conservationist and author of A Sand County Almanac, and his wife Estella, the Aldo Leopold Foundation is a conservation organization that works to inspire an ethical relationship between people and nature through Leopold’s legacy. Leopold's vision of a “land ethic” was not meant to be rigid or dogmatic; instead, he intended for it to evolve continually through personal reflection, open dialogue, and people’s actions on the land and in their communities. In addition, the Leopold Education Project, an interdisciplinary environmental education curriculum designed for middle schools and high school students, helps create an “ecologically literate citizenry by heightening student awareness of the natural world…and instilling a love, admiration and respect for the land so that each individual may develop a personal land ethic.”
TERI: The Campus of Life
The Training, Innovation & Research Institute (TERI) is a unique educational organization serving children and adults with autism and other developmental and learning disabilities. The Brice Institute is honored to serve on TERI's Agricultural Advisory Committee, contributing time and funds in partnership with Natural Food Certifiers to develop hands-on organic farming and market gardening programs for students and the TERI Farm along with small commercial projects, including raising chickens, pigs and selling organic microgreens to move than 40 restaurants in the San Diego area.
