MONTEZUMA SCHOOL TO FARM PROJECT
is a program of the Mancos Conservation District in southwestern Colorado.
Since 2009, the project has focused on providing integrated, hands-on school garden classes in Montezuma County. What began with a farm field trip for 40 Mancos students has grown to incorporate five school garden programs, professional school garden coordinators, summer farm camp, youth farmers markets, and an apprentice program.
MSTFP has installed a 2+ acre school production area, heritage orchards, high tunnels, cold frames, vertical growing spaces, permaculture swales, wicking beds, adobe ovens, and numerous living examples of water and soil conservation across the schools in the county. Classes also utilize a green house, a biothermal heating system, an on-site beehive, and an aquaponics unit as garden learning spaces.
