Highwater Farm is kicking off a 2020 Capital Campaign to raise much-needed funds to start up the farm. Highwater is in the process of becoming an approved 501(c)3 non-profit organization, but you can still make a tax-deductible charitable donation to us through the Aspen Valley Land Trust. To direct your donation to Highwater Farm, please mention us in the “special instructions” section at the bottom of the donation form.

WE’RE GROWING!

We’re launching a once acre vegetable farm at the Silt River Preserve in 2020. With help from the community, we’re working to bring locally and sustainably grown produce to the Colorado River and Roaring Fork valleys.

We commit to farming in a way that protects our environment and yields nutrient-dense food. We don’t use chemical pesticides or fertilizers, instead we work toward building healthy soils and a healthy farm ecosystem.

 

EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION

Once our farm is established, we’ll hire local youth to work in our summer and fall programs. College-level crew leaders and high-school students will have the opportunity to learn how to grow vegetables and gain a better understanding of the food system, while learning valuable job and communication skills. 

In 2021 we’ll hire college-level crew leaders and teenage crew workers (ages 14-17) to work in our summer pilot program (June-August.)

FUELING THE COMMUNITY

We believe that everyone deserves access to fresh healthy produce, that’s why we commit to donating 25% of what we grow to LiftUp food pantries and soup kitchens in Garfield County. The remainder of our produce will be available at local farmers’ markets and will be sold to restaurants from Rifle to Glenwood Springs in order to sustain our farm and youth programs.
