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.
