Only 10 days left…Can you help us out?

We’ve got 10 days and counting to win the $600 People’s Choice Award for our garden program! All we’ve got to do is be the garden with the most amount of supporters by December 16th!

Right now we are in 3rd place, so we need your help! Can you help us out with $10 to meet our goal of having the most amount of supporters in 10 days? This is an investment you are making in our children, youth and community as a whole.

Fantastic Farmers Markets!

Why, hello there! Thanks for checkout out our page and all of the wonderful things we are getting ourselves into. The past few weeks have been very busy for us with school starting up again, selling at the Conejos County Farmers Market, weekly gardening sessions on Sundays at 5 and harvesting produce for the salad bar at South Conejos Schools! As the season is beginning to wind down — even though it doesn’t feel like that at all — I feel the need to express my gratitude for the generous and supportive community of Antonito and beyond! It has been a wholesome summer of gardening, bringing my dream to fruition, and for this I will always be grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Enjoy these photos from the Market yesterday! Our kids are the best and wonderful entrepreneurs!

Earth Day Banquet

We recently celebrated our tree planting activities at the Dutch Mill in Antonito, Colorado! All of our awesome tree planters were invited to attend, along with family members and friends. The banquet featured local, fresh food, including pork and lamb roast from Cactus Hill Farm in Capulin, Colorado. The Colorado Trust provided the funds to host the banquet, and three other local non-profit groups were present as well: Conejos County Clean Water, SLV Ecosystem Council, Reconnect Collective and Simple Living Concepts. Thank you Colorado Project Learning Tree for providing the 200 trees and shrubs which we got to plant!
