Our History

The Learning Fields at Chaffee Crossing began as The Greenhouse Project, a Sanctioned Project of the River Valley Master Gardeners. Today, the Learning Fields continues as an RVMG Sanctioned Project on a 7.5-acre campus constructed on property deeded to the Learning Fields by the Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority.
