Woman Entrepreneur:
Jesyca Virnig

Tiny Friends Farm is a team of master teachers dedicated to raising the quality of early childhood education in their community.

Jesyca tell us ” I am bringing together two of my greatest loves, small children and animals/nature. Children need intentional experiences with present individuals to build critical skills for lifelong success such as perseverance, empathy, and self-regulation. Interacting with animals and plants provides such a natural and conducive context to foster these skills with children.”

This mini-grant will help to add another round of parent education classes to their feeling offering.
