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.
ElHI Community Center - Located in Ignacio, CO, this project is a partnership with The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado and ELHI. ELHI unifies the community and supports personal well-being by providing safe, holistic opportunities that support education, skill building, and resiliency.
