2013 Was a Great Year for AntFarm!
Thanks to staff, community volunteers and youth in 2013 our organically cultivated farm raised 10,000 pounds of produce for our farmers market and for donation to community members and programs.
In 2013 we started renovation on our Outdoor Learning space. This building, which is located just a few blocks west of the Cafe and Indoor Learning spaces, houses our Can and Bottle Recycling Center and other Outdoor Learning programs. Our Can and Bottle program has been to able to pay rent for the Cafe and Indoor Learning sites. We are thankful to Steve Thorstad, with the help of adult and youth volunteers, for their hard work and dedication. Other programs that will run out of this space are AntFarm Outdoor Adventure, Community Connect and AntFarm's organic agricultural projects and farmers market.
Last year we were successful in our Kickstarter campaign to raise funds that would later help us to open our cafe. The cafe is now running and serving coffee, tea, gelato and pastries and also provides meeting space to individuals and groups.
We appreciate the support and owe a great deal to many of you for our growth and successes in the Cafe and other AntFarm programs! Thank you!
