Feeding Laramie Valley
Feeding Laramie Valley (FLV) is committed to working toward creating a sustainable and equitable food system, and promoting food security throughout the Rocky Mountain Region—especially here in Albany County in Southeast Wyoming, the community we call home.
Since our founding in 2009, we work to fulfill our mission through increased food production, access, distribution, and educational efforts that encourage community-led food sovereignty. Feeding Laramie Valley grows our own fruits and vegetables, mentors and supports backyard gardeners, develops and helps with management of community gardens, and is deeply committed to partnerships with independent farmers. We share high-quality produce with individuals and families who need it, at no charge to them, with a special focus on elders, children and people living with disabilities and chronic illness.
ACRES Student Farms
Agricultural Community Resources for Everyday Sustainability
ACRES Student Farm is a 1.8 acre vegetable farm that is community oriented, volunteer based, and student run. We grow our produce using sustainable methods and strive to support and promote local agriculture. The Student Farm additionally provides educational and research opportunities for the Laramie and University of Wyoming communities.
4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better. Through life-changing 4‑H programs, nearly six million kids have taken on critical societal issues, such as addressing community health inequities, engaging in civil discourse and advocating for equity and inclusion for all.
