The City of Lafayette is working closely with Abbondanza Organic Seeds & Produce to start farming Thomas Open Space with the projected first crop in 2007.
Abbondanza feels strongly about educating children about where food comes from and getting our young ones into patterns of healthy eating. Our Farm to School initiative includes field trips, classroom visits, sponsoring meals into cafeterias and donating seeds to childrenâ€™s gardens as well as creating edible gardens from which children gain the experience of planting and harvesting their own food in the form of salads, carrot sticks and corn tortillas! We have strived individually and cooperatively to gain ground in the national front â€“ locally we have been fortunate to work with the Our Love of Children Foundation within Boulder County at Creekside Elementary to advance our goals within the Foundationâ€™s School Well-Being Project. Additionally, we sit on a board, which is working to promote Farm to Cafeteria goals at a statewide level.

There are few precious opportunities for kids to focus and be part of a bigger picture, where their contribution really counts and they have opportunity to build esteem through contribution and accomplishment.
