Georgics shows the power of being reconnected to the earth and learning principles of community and self-reliance.
Students read several classics that take place in an agrarian setting so they see the value and growth that comes from hard work.
They learn what William DeMille named the 6 Mini-Ag Ideals and the Georgic Principles (mission, entrepreneurship, forgiveness, self-validation, community stewardship, interdependence, real estate ownership, etc.) which are not only part of agriculture but part of life.
A strong emphasis is placed on the power of spiritually creating (also known as planning) something before physically creating it, and the students plan a Georgic project which can be anything from planning and growing a garden to raising bees or poultry.
