Support the Future of Regenerative Ag in the North Fork Valley!
Through Colorado Gives Day we are re-seeding our Equity and Learning Garden.
Our garden includes a timber-frame pavilion (classroom) and demonstration gardens. Help us raise the funds to provide this classroom, and growing and community spaces at Arbol Farm.
Several years ago, with community help, we constructed a timber-frame building to serve as an open-air classroom for our workshops. This classroom, and our demonstration gardens, have recently found a new home at Arbol Farm outside Paonia. Here, we will continue our focus on regenerative agriculture, permaculture design and other workshops. We will also offer movie nights, and demonstration gardens for the community to help cultivate, learn from, and explore.
Arbol Farm is a living legacy with a history of community events, from the origins of the Valley’s farmers market (which has now moved to Paonia Town Park), to biodynamic training with Viva la Vida Foundation, and hands-on workshops with natural builders in the valley.
The Colorado Farm and Food Alliance is honored to be part of and to contribute to this legacy through our activities that benefit the community.
Centerpiece of our Just Good Food program, this classroom and garden space is a place where people can gather, learn, share ideas and get inspired. The transition now happening in agriculture, as we shift to more regenerative practices, is a community-scale process, and we are so much more successful when we work together in positive, uplifting environments.
