Cultivating Connections officially formed in 2017 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit under our fiscal sponsor Bitter Root RC&D, but really came about as the vision of our director, Laura Garber as an intersection of her experience as an Organic Farmer with a passion for connection community through food, education youth about where food comes from and giving back to the community. As a woman in organic agriculture XXX.
Intended to inspire gratitude, generosity, fraternity, participation, a creative spirit, and a love of Mother Nature, Cultivating Connections teaches real job skills in the Agricultural and Home Arts and act as a catalyst for community building using food as the tool to bring people together through education, participation, and celebration.
