The Problem

We are facing a loss of biodiversity globally. On the smallest local scale, Flying Pig Farm seeks to address and confront this problem by cultivating a Community Learning Garden that models regenerative agricultural practices, respect for all members of the ecosystem, a reverence for food, and the role of humans as healthy contributors and land stewards. Through this learning, we hope to grow a community of young people who can care for the land wherever they go with gratitude and attentiom.

Our Plan

We are establishing a Food Prairie ecosystem in Manitou Springs, CO. The flowers, grasses, berries, shrubs, and trees of the project will expand the pollinator highway through our region, provide important protected habitat for local wildlife, and serve as an outdoor classroom for public school students in the area.
