Let’s Create Community. Together.
By donating to Convivium Urban Farmstead, you are enabling us to help to help others learn more about healthy food – where it comes from and how to prepare it. To us, creating community around food also means providing tools and education about healthy food choices to children and adults who are struggling with food access and the adverse health effects of highly processed foods.
Your donation today will go to support the following programs:
Healthy Cooking Class for Families
Your donation supports a family’s participation in a month long, healthy cooking class. Our family classes are based on a cookbook called “Good and Cheap”. It was written by a nutrition PhD student as her thesis and includes healthy recipes that can be prepared for $4/day – the amount per day that you receive if you qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Donate here.
Healthy Cooking Class for Students
Your donation sponsors a child’s participation in a six week, healthy habits cooking class. Our youth classes involve fun recipes designed to expose children to different types of healthy whole foods, especially vegetables, while also teaching children where food comes from and how to prepare it. Donate here.
Free Produce in Neighborhood Gardens
Your donation helps to increase the amount of free vegetables we are able to grow and harvest for the community. Convivium plants and tends raised-bed garden boxes around the North End neighborhood. The produce from these beds is free for anyone who would like to harvest it in effort to make healthy food more affordable and accessible, especially in this neighborhood. Donate here.
Field Trips & After-School Snack Programs
Your donation provides students the opportunity to learn where their food comes from, how it grows, and the skills to make a simple, nutritious snack with real ingredients. For the upcoming school year, we hope to increase the amount of free, educational opportunities we are able to offer to schools and youth organizations through tours and hands-on cooking and gardening activities. Donate here to help us make this happen.
Thank you to our generous supporters.
