SustainEd Farms – SustainEd Farms

Date grant awarded: September 1, 2019

SustainEd Farms creates and delivers sustainability and nutrition curriculum centered around experiences on school farms and gardens to position students as leaders of a more food-secure community. The USDA estimates that over 23.5 million people live in food deserts across the country. These areas with limited access to supermarkets are often disproportionately home to low-income and minority populations. Denver has 45 census tracts classified as food deserts affecting over 189,471 residents, including students.

Through The Pollination Project grant, SustainEd Farms is able to pilot our curriculum through fun activities that teach Denver students how to grow a community grounded in sustainable food security.
