Buena Vista Edible Schoolyard

The Buena Vista Edible Schoolyard is a collaborative effort between the Grimm Family Education Foundation and the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District. The Foundation, whose mission is to close the achievement gap, graduating students at or above grade level in literacy and math, improve the health of students and families and create economic impact in the communities that we serve, provides fiscal and programmatic support for the principles taught at the Edible Schoolyard.

Cornerstone Permaculture

Cornerstone Permaculture is an ever-growing Permaculture farm, based on 4 acres of field and forest at the Headwaters of the Winooski River. 

Here we grow any and all perennial food and supplemental annuals that we can.  From Winter Squash to Buckwheat, Hardy Kiwi to Balck Walnuts, and everything hady in between.  Landscape Design plays a huge part in this project, as it is a residence for a young family of three.  We strive to utilize permaculture principles, such as having each variety or plant have 3 or more functions in order to be considered useful on the farm. 

Kitchen Kids

 Kitchen Kids is a from scratch cooking class broken into 4 week sessions. Multiple sessions are held at the local Community Center as each class is limited to a 1:5 participant ratio to ensure quality learning. 

Benavidez Community Garden

History of the Benavidez Community Garden

Persistence and perseverance in the face of adversity are, to some degree, fundamental to gardening in general, but, in the case of the Benavidez Community Garden in Houston, Texas, they have been there in spades...no gardening pun intended! :-) 

Travis Co-op

We support local farms and sustainable agriculture by giving our members an easy way to buy a variety of local and organic produce each week at a great price. Everything in our shares is either nationally-certified USDA organic or locally grown with sustainable farming practices by farmers we know. Travis Co-op also helps to foster a sense of community among our members and is a not-for-profit program.
