Education & Outreach

Education is the thread that weaves together all parts of our organization. Whether it is in a classroom,  a local farmers market, or a bus stop, the scope of our programs aim to teach, engage, and inspire others to be part of cultivating a healthier local food system! We believe outreach and education are vital in our demonstration of sustainable food systems.
