Cultivating Sustaining

Our mission is to build, cultivate, and sustain a beautiful life by addressing food access and sustainability through education, outreach, and advocacy. 


Our Roots

LTBSC (formerly LTBCSGA) was founded in 2015 as a school garden initiative, two years later we began creating sustainability education programming that concentrates on agriculture and local food system advocacy. Since interdependence is an important practice of sustainability, OHM (Our Helping Meals) our community outreach program, was created in March 2020 as response to the covid-19 pandemic to support single family households and economically disadvantaged, immunosuppressed, and elderly individuals. Our newest venture, Native Nosh CO-OP & Kitchen will increase access to fresh food within our region by changing the infrastructure of our local food system by connecting underserved communities and small farms. The supportive services that we provide the farms and communities that we work with ensure economic, environmental, and social sustainability for the future.
