About Us

·      The Food Access Partnership works to increase access to community members with limited financial resources to locally grown food.

·      Get Growing provides educational videos and demos for the backyard gardener to learn more about growing food.

·      CRAFT provides educational opportunities for our island’s seasonal interns to visit island farms, learn new agricultural practices, and connect with other interns and farmers.
