Welcome to the Academy

Be realistic and demand the impossible

Welcome to the Academy

We are glad you found us. Here's a quick look at what we are all about.


Not your ordinary farm, but so much more.

Expand your knowledge of agriculture, animals, and nature while examining the fundamentals of media production or hacking. Learn something new while teaching peers about your skills and interests.

Online, anything seems to be possible, the barriers to entry so low that people really try to achieve and accomplish some pretty incredible and impossible things. People grind away in online environments and social games tending virtual farms and slaying virtual dragons. Why not translate some of that back into the real world?--Academy co-founder, Jesse Hirsh

Open your mind to the impossible, and let your inspiration flow. Critical thinking and collaborative cognition are essential.


We're a peer to peer school. Join an inter-generational community in which students are teachers and teachers are students. Some of the teachers are animals!

We can all learn from each other and help each other learn. Working together makes possible what would be impossible to achieve alone. Mutual aid is the glue that holds our community together.


Thanks to the high speed connectivity that allows us to stream continuously, our community spans the globe. Virtual events also make possible participation in the Academy's doings when being onsite is not viable.

Knowledge increases in value the more it is shared. Join us in exploring the power of shared human creativity.

We appreciate your attention
