Lost Sierra Food Project (LSFP) has had a busy season! In addition to planting and harvesting fresh food and hosting Tuesday evening farm stands, they have also provided over 2,800 educational hours to 1,100 students from all nooks of the community: FRC, PUSD, PCS, and the community at large.
One day a class of Kindergarteners might be tasting kale, and on another day folks are learning how to ferment cabbage. Volunteers arrive weekly to help with general farm chores and the hard working staff makes sure that there are plenty of choices at the self-serve honor system fridge. These are just some of the things that help the organization pursue its mission: to envision a world where everyone has access to healthy, affordable food and feels empowered to grow their own produce.
LSFP has been working on an upcoming farm to table fundraiser to help support these important educational activities. Farm Director and Co-Founder Jessie Mazar notes, “This is an event we have been hoping to put on for a couple of years and we are so excited that it is going to happen!”
