Growing with Purpose is the agricultural education arm of Victory Christian Academy.
In this program, our students learn sustainable agriculture
through hands-on training and experiential, project-based learning opportunities.
The Growing with Purpose agricultural program consists of several parts:
1. The Beulah Project (school-to-farm program)
2. Blooming with Purpose agricultural classes
3. VCA Farmer's Market
We are thrilled to offer these amazing educational opportunities for our students
while providing fresh produce to our community and to food desert regions!
We aim to inspire the next generation of growers
while deepening our relationships with the Creator and each other!
We aim to strengthen and nourish families while forming vital connections
and partnerships with other farms and community members!
The Beulah Project
Students learn valuable lessons on growing food and raising and caring for a wide variety of animals! Students care for meat chickens, egg laying chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, cows, and horses.
In this program, students frequently go to a farm called Beulah Family Homestead, which is owned and operated by Marcus & Efueko Landry.
This innovative program teaches agricultural skills, character-formation, entrepreneurial skills,
and community building.
Blooming With Purpose
Students learn about sustainable agriculture through hands on learning at
VCA's Milwaukee Campus.
Students participate in growing and caring for plants while learning about healthy lifestyle choices, living sustainably, and caring for God's amazing creation.
VCA Farmers Market
We host a year-round farmers market, in which local businesses and growers provide nutritious, healthy produce and quality products
for the public to enjoy.
Currently, our indoor market is held
on Sunday evenings at our Cudahy location.
Our outdoor market is currently being planned and more information will be available soon.
