If you know me, you know I love empowering kids and building community. I also love working in the garden. Working for the Cornucopia Project allows me to do all of these things at the same time! We use edible education (school gardens, cooking programs and agricultural experiences) to build healthy kids, good food and strong community. We've got big plans for expanding our impact next year and could use your help reaching our very ambitious campaign goal. I hope you will support this worthwhile organization. Thanks!!!

About this Campaign

Rooted in Community: Growing a Healthy Future

Growing healthy kids, good food and strong community with edible education!


WHAT WE DO

With locally-grown food at the heart of all we do, the Cornucopia Project helps to build strong, healthy communities by developing and delivering agriculture-based edible education programs to children as they grow, and by playing a leadership role in the local food movement.


HOW WE DO IT

School Gardens:  We support elementary grade science goals with hands-on, garden-based curriculum that connects kids to where their food comes from.

Cool Chefs Youth Cooking Classes:  We empower students with skills and tools they need to  prepare and cook fresh, healthy food.

Farm to Fork High School Agriculture Program:  Through real work, we build leadership and entrepreneurship skills  in the next generation of local food advocates.


WHY WE DO IT

It’s good for our Kids.  Studies show and experience proves that children eat what they grow. Starting kids early on healthy foods builds good eating habits for life.

It’s good for our Families.  Children influence the eating habits of their families.  When kids ask for and eat more fruits and veggies, this often changes how families shop and ultimately, eat.

It’s good for our Community.  Engaging teens in growing and selling to local businesses supports our community and our economy.  It also builds a new generation of strong local leaders, entrepreneurs, and healthy food advocates.

It’s good for our Planet.  Sustainable practices utilize fewer precious natural resources and help rebuild the soil for future growing.  Growing and consuming local food minimizes our community’s carbon footprint, too!
