SLV Local Foods Coalition

The San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition develops local networks, educates the community, and promotes programs and policies that create an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable local food system for the San Luis Valley Region.

Campaign for the Healthy Living Park

We reached our goal!! Thanks to everyone who made this happen: our donors, lenders, community organizers, teachers, farmers, and friends. We couldn't have done this without you! Read more about the acquisition of the Polston property in the official press release from the Trust for Public Land and in a Denver Westword blog post. We are now hosting regular work days at Polston to weed the land and prepare it for the future. Check out the Rio Grande Healthy Living Park website for more information.
