Story

When the Shop and Save closed in Spanish Lake in 2018 if left Spanish Lake a "food desert". We went to work creating an abundance of food for Spanish Lake. The soil here is rich and will grow almost any seed you plant. We believe everyone should have access to fresh local fruits and vegetables. In the few short years we have had our non-profit we were able to grow 20,000 lbs of food for our community. We distribute this food through the Spanish Lake Farmers Market and a senior program. Our goal is to be a model for building healthy local food systems. 

We offer holistic healing to our community as well. When we started our mission to create an abundance of food, we didn't fully realize how much this space would mean to our community. We bring our community together to celebrate with us in 2 seasonal celebrations. The video above lets you sneak a peak at our Fall Harvest Festival. When a community has been overlooked for so long any energy put in creates so much joy. We measure our success by the smiles on the face of our community.

This year, thanks to a generous funding partner, we were able to raise a forty foot diameter yurt! The space is magic and already helping heal and bond our community. In 2023 we plan to offer several classes/events to take that work to the next level. We know we can't do it all by ourselves. Your donation helps us with EVERYTHING we do. Our impact = your impact!
