The Montezuma School to Farm Project (MSTFP) works within Montezuma County providing programming across three rural school districts. MSTFP currently works in six different schools providing monthly programming during the school day for all students PreK-5th grade. MSTFP also provides Friday programming in all three school districts for students PreK-8th grade. They provide standards aligned STEM lessons to middle school teachers. These lessons focus specifically on water conservation and local resource management issues.
During the summer months, MSTFP hosts a crew of paid high school students in collaboration with the Southwest Conservation Corps. They also host high school interns throughput summer, another paid position where the interns get to learn real life, hands of skills in food production. Along with the Executive director and Education Director, a crew of up to seven AmeriCorps service members makes all this possible!
