For 7 years, The Sharing Farm Society’s signature annual fundraiser, The Garlic Festival, has supported our food-dignity mandate to grow fresh local organic produce for low-income families. We grow food, we grow farmers, we grow community.

The Richmond Schoolyard Society, skilled host of Chefs to the Field for 4 years, brings children into the “outdoor classroom” to learn, grow and connect with their community. Children, through hands-on learning, learn where their food comes from, appreciate seasonality, and gain an increased awareness of their natural environment and the community around them. ”
