Community Gardening and Food Systems

Cultivando believes that all community members need access to healthy, local produce and that our neighborhoods are stronger and much, much sweeter when we are growing fruits and veggies in them! We hold a curriculum to train community members in organic gardening, local food systems, traditional foods and herbs, and seed-saving that we offer every summer.

 

We also work with local food pantries through a collaboration called the Adams County Food Access Collaborative to increase their access to fresh, local produce and healthy food. Last year the ACFAC worked with local farmers and We Don't Waste to increase the amount of fresh produce and healthy food in our local food pantries by over 400,000 pounds. For more information on food security and community-centered solutionsin Adams County, please see the ACFAC Needs and Assets Report below, produced by Cultivando in 2017.
