BUILDING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES Collaborative
The inspiration for this collaborative developed as Moniker became aware that rural and/or low-income communities across Colorado often have insufficient access to organic food sources. In partnership with Paonia Soil Co. and local organizations, Moniker brings module gardens and gardening education to rural communities.
North Fork Gardens - North Fork Montessori School @ Crawford utilizes their module gardens to provide gardening education, cooking classes, and fresh food to students, parents, and the greater community.
LiftUp of Routt County - Moniker's largest garden install to date with 18 produce pods installed. LIftUp is a human service hub in Steamboat, Colorado that helps individuals and families access basics needs services to help towards a path of self-sufficiency.
