Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a more healthy, just, resilient, regenerative locally based food system in Butte County.

Description

We are a group of folks who share your dreams of health and community

We have a shared vision that the way in which our food grows impacts us personally as well as the planet and all Life on earth. We value community and connection that fosters a sense of belonging and healthy real food security for all.

Our vision for Butte County is to create a strong local food system as the basis of a strong local economy, anchored in a healthy community that thrives on neighbors helping neighbors.

We are working from backyard gardens all the way to the whole Northstate to create more food security. This involves everything from informing folks on the importance of buying food from our local farmers, to growing food to policy work.

Our signature event, is the Victory Gardens 2.0 Garden Box and Bucket BLITZ. We are building up to 50 gardens in people's yards in both the Spring and Fall to create a community that grows food together. Our Eat Your Lawn program invites folks to turn their whole lawns into Permaculture Food Forests.

We do monthly educational meetups, Farm to Fork Feasts with some of our local growers, put on educational events, are sponsoring an art contest this year, starting a "Restar" program to celebrate local chefs who use ingredients grown by our local farmers.
