Southwest Growing Partners Fellowship


This year, Jen was chosen as a regional community organizer for Archuleta County, Colorado.  Her 10 month plan is to create a school to farm program at Pagosa Elementary School by creating relationships and gathering stakeholders interested in food sovereignty and empowering the folks of Archuleta County to take back ownership of their food supply.

Growing Partners’ 10 month Community Organizing Fellowship connects and supports community leaders and the local food projects they’re involved in as they share skills, develop new leaders, and find solutions to the root causes of injustice and inequity. ​​

The Fellowship also connects organizations, coalitions, and other stakeholders across the Southwest Colorado region, which builds community power as part of Growing Partners’ mission to cultivate a healthy local food system for all.
