Celebrating Hidden Villa Volunteers

This May, Hidden Villa celebrated its volunteers and community members at the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Party. With generosity and dedication, Hidden Villa's volunteers teach, garden, farm, perform administrative tasks, serve on committees and on our Board of Trustees, donate, build, and help maintain everything from our property to our website.

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.
