Organic, Local, and Made with Love. Real Kids - Real Food, Real Change

If given the opportunity, kids understand they can make a difference and that is a powerful seed to plant for their future!

Farm to School Programming In Action

Farm to School Garden & Nutrition Program

Together with Farmhouse School Lunch Program ,we serve 700  local, organic USDA meals daily. By eating local, not only are kids learning to make healthy choices but they are building the local farming network, supporting the local economy, reducing their carbon footprint, and saving the bees and butterflies!

Our mission is two-fold:  Re-establish the "food basket" of Taos by helping local farmers secure contracts through the local schools and restaurants as well as to help to ensure a sustainable food future in Taos Valley by working with local schools to teach students how to grow produce and then how to cook it nutritionally once it's harvested. We have established classes from pre-school to 8th grade. The response from students and staff at the schools we work in is a loud and resounding call for "More!" garden time, cooking classes, and tasting events. 

We host school gardens that give students the chance to plant and harvest their own vegetables. The kids are loving the kale, cabbage, and spinach and are watching the corn, peas, and beans grow by inches every week! They love to hand water the plants and even pulling the weeds!  Connecting with the water and land establishes a lifelong ethic of stewardship.

Education Projects

We provide weekly cooking classes and tasting events that give students the opportunity to acquire tastes for healthy foods, learn how to cook, and meet local farmers.  This activity links students with healthier food choices for the future and supports the success of a local, organic lunch program.
