Glacier Community Farm
Glacier Community Farm- A Window Into Working Lands
The Glacier Community Farm is a long-term vision for the Crested Butte Land Trust and the Gunnison Valley community. Your Land Trust is bringing this project to life with an agricultural lease to Mountain Roots Food Project on the farm home site. This exciting project will begin with breaking ground on 1/3 acre of garden beds for the 2020 growing season. The food grown will be given to those who need it most in these uncertain times. The Land Trust’s partnership with Mountain Roots will continue through a collaborative Masters of Environmental Management Fellowship to plan how the home site and surrounding hay meadows can serve as our community’s window into working lands by providing space and opportunities for the Crested Butte community to connect to land through agriculture.
This effort depends on volunteers who are looking to give back by getting their hands dirty! If you’re interested in volunteering you can sign up for our Tuesday workdays. We have a Tuesday morning shift from 9am-12pm that you can sign up for and show for any duration of that timeframe.
