Statement of Purpose
“Healthy lands and clean water protect Colorado’s farms, food, and drink. “
Strengthening local food systems means safeguarding the health of the land and supply of clean water and addressing long-term sustainability issues like climate change.
Our partners and supporters are businesses and associations, family farms and markets, local restaurants and producers, rural food and economic groups, and others that understand protecting Colorado’s environment protects our family farm and local food economy.
We seek to strengthen Colorado’s local food movement, and to connect its rural and urban communities from “farm to table.” We seek to cultivate climate and conservation action and to bring wholesome, locally sourced food and drink to Coloradans across the state.
“Eat Local ~ Think Global ~ Act Now”
Make a contribution to Colorado’s sustainable farm and food future.
Our combined voice can support our local farm and food economy, amplify and support climate action, and help ensure that clean water and healthy land are made a priority when managing for oil and gas development in Colorado so that our farmlands and clean water are not harmed.
