Invite your family and friends to sponsor you to help us build our job training farm for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum.

And don’t forget your custom-made TLS Alpaca Trot T-shirt, designed by a TLS student on the autism spectrum in our annual T-shirt Design Contest. 

**Please note, much of the course is on grass pathways with some gravel in places. Unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible, and stroller friendly only for “heavy duty” off road jogging strollers. We ask that you leave your dogs at home (service animals welcome of course).
