The Conversation Grows
Food, farms, access, environmental impact, and community health affects us all. The momentum and conversation around these ideas are gaining national attention. We are proud to share that Sibella Kraus, Founder of SAGE and 2013 Duveneck Humanitarian Award winner, is featured in Food For Thought, a project of Huffington Post. In her post Sibella shares, "By strengthening urban-rural links and re-investing in regional agriculture, we can help sustain and contain cities, ultimately making metropolitan areas more resilient, thriving and enduring." Read more about New Ruralism, Urban Edge Agriculture, and how this is impacting our Regional landscape.
Want to join the conversation?
Hidden Villa is hosting a panel discussion about FOOD; who grows it, who gets it, and how do we can make our local system more equitable and sustainable?
Please join us for a free community event on April 12th from 2-4 pm at the Dana Center. Space is limited so please register early!

Hidden Villa was originally the home of Frank and Josephine Duveneck and their family, who over the years made the ranch into a place for environmental discovery, social awareness, and community involvement. Today, Hidden Villa is a nonprofit educational organization that uses its organic farm, wilderness, and community to teach and provide opportunities to learn about the environment and social justice.
