WELCOME TO HOPE SPRINGS FARM
The mission of Hope Springs Farm is to provide adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as autism a meaningful day through joyful group activities within the community and on a family farm setting that lead to satisfying friendships.
Our Farm Program is Reopened as of March 22, 2021
The Covid-19 positivity rate in Dauphin County is currently rated as "Moderate", so our Farm program is open to Growers as of March 22, 2021. If the community spread rises to a substantial level (over 10%) we will close temporarily. We will reopen after two specific milestones are reached: 1) 14 days, and 2) two weeks of moderate community spread levels at 10% or less. These numbers are posted every Friday afternoon at the COVID-19 Early Warning Monitor System Dashboard (see blue boxes below). At this site you can view all the counties and even different indicators. We are administered by Dauphin County so that is the only county that will trigger a response for us. We plan to reopen our community program once we hire and train new staff members to replace those we have lost over our most recent shutdown.
Check out our Weekly Virtual Zoom Parties
All are welcome to check out our weekly Farm Zoom Parties. They will continue through on Mondays and Wednesdays at 1:00 PM. For the next few weeks, we are cutting back to two days a week but we hope to return to three days a week as soon as we can! Zoom Parties are a great way for us to stay connected with our Growers and community during this time. During the parties we show what is going on at the Farm, complete crafts and cooking activities, and more! Some activities we completed during March include Copycat McDonalds Shamrock Shakes and Fingerprint Easter Egg Cards.
