Garden Farms Foundation
As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, Garden Farms Foundation is dedicated to enhancing garden programming in pre K-high schools, other non-profit agencies, and various underserved communities across the valley. We work together with Garden Farms of Nevada to enrich students with farm-to-table events, educational curriculum, environmental awareness, art integration, nutrition education, farmers markets and more. This, paired with hands-on garden lessons in the outdoor classrooms, provides the children of today the access to the food security of tomorrow they, themselves need to grow and flourish in our desert.
