Community Events

Throughout the year we host and attend community events where we provide hands-on food and Farm-to-School education programs that encourage students and their families to try new foods, discover seasonal, local foods and meet local producers.  We look forward to seeing you at our annual events.

With more than 12,000 plants, you can take home your garden staples and try something new. Heirloom and greenhouse varieties, too. All plants were organically grown with help from BVSD staff, students and community members.

100% of proceeds support nutrition education and farm to school programming for BVSD’s 31,000 students.

Presented by the BVSD School Food Project, with generous support from the Colorado Garden Foundation, and donations from Lake Valley Seeds and McGuckin Hardware.
