Since the beginning, OCP has worked to engage our community through food.
The seed-to-plate process has always been at the core of our educational outreach, so knowing the farmer who grew it, knowing how to prepare and process it, or simply sitting down to a delicious meal together is what it's all about around here.
Growing Since 2016
Started in 2016, CultivaTeen is our flagship program that takes crew members on tours of local farms; hosts educational, hands on lessons; and focuses on the seed-to-plate process.
Started in 2018, Re-Fresh Community Gardens work to educate Re-Freshers on local growing methods and culinary skills, with the intention of gardeners taking this knowledge home to practice.
