OUR INITIATIVES

Our work in the community falls under three campaigns: Educational Gardens, Slow Fish, and Chef Alliance. In addition, we organize 'signature' fundraising events including Farm to Table dinners, and our annual Garden Gala, as well as participating in many local events, spreading awareness through educational publications and merchandise.

All proceedings benefit our campaigns and local organic small scale farmers.
