Nightingale Farms is an abandoned coffee farm in the Jamaica Blue Mountains that will be agro- ecologically restored in an effort to create a green economy for smallholding farmers in the region. Once restored, the farm will offer ecotourism retreats to facilitate meaningful connections between the visitor/consumer and farmer/producer. In collaboration with educational institutions, the farm will also develop an ongoing service learning program to promote sustainable farming practices.
