Community Spotlight: Montezuma School to Farm Project

Greg Felsen with The Montezuma School to Farm Project talks about how the organization provides engaging garden lessons at the crossroads of food production, food preparation and resource conservation to Montezuma County schools, serving students from age 3 to18.

The MSTFP school gardens produce a whopping 5000 pounds of fresh food locally. It's donated to local food pantries, and is sold at student produce stands at Southwest Open School and at some Harvest Festivals. The Project is proud to be expanding with a new student produce stand in Mancos soon.

They'll also be expanding their future offerings through collaboration with Montezuma County 4H.


LP recently moved to Mancos from Austin, Texas, where they worked as a Case Manager for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and in HOA property management where they were fortunate to learn many different styles of communication and creative thinking/problem solving. In their time away from work, they watch a ton of movies (spanning all decades, nationalities, and genres), and tries to listen to one really good album every day.
