Growing food & community one garden at a time.
at the schools and in our neighborhoods where we can engage people of all ages in relevant, hands-on learning.
by allowing students and community members to take ownership of the planting, growing, harvesting, and cooking processes.
WINDY VAN HOOTEN
is an old term used by performers for the perfect circus.
A garden is like the perfect circus with a balancing act of colorful plants, dancing critters, radiant sunlight, and a gardener as the ring leader trying to keep it all working together. Our mission is to introduce this beautiful circus to students and families who can get out of the bandstands and become part of the show!
