About Calypso

Calypso Farm and Ecology Center is a non-profit, educational farm based in Ester, Alaska. We provide hands-on education to Fairbanks school children and community members through our education programs. Our diversified farm operates as a CSA to feed a number of local families through the growing season.

Our mission is to encourage local food production and environmental awareness through hands-on education in natural and farming ecosystems.
