The New Hope Catholic Worker Farm was started in 2001 and is on 33 acres in a beautiful valley just south of Dubuque, Iowa. They have a half acre in vegetables and fruits, a milking cow, a flock of chickens and turkeys, as well as bees. New Hope’s mission is to pursue the ideal of the "worker-scholar" that Peter Maurin discussed. They host periodic school sessions for those seeking alternative education in a farm context. Please contact them if you would like to be notified of such events.
