Blair Martin has had the vision for more than 20 years.
It is a farm for at-risk children, and it would address all social ills in the community — teen suicide, high school drop outs, drug use, delinquency and poor work ethic, among others, he said.
The remedy: good, hard farm work.
“It’s a vision that goes across the community,” Martin said.
His vision is Matti’s Farm, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. It would house foster and at-risk children and grow them under the rewards and values of a farm life, he said.
