Truckee Community Farm is a winner. Congratulations to Truckee Community Farm and the Kelly family for winning the June 2013 Dome of the Month! With this 33 ft.

They’ve been doing great work this year Truckee Community Farm Wins Your 2 Cents Grant.

Growing Spaces CEO & Co-Owner Puja Dhyan Parsons had a chance to visit the Truckee Community Farm this spring and see the culmination of the Truckee Community Farm vision we learned about nearly a year ago. Susie Sutphins was kind enough to take Puja on a tour of the Tahoe area to show her all the new projects in the works and in planning. It was a truly inspirational trip for Puja and we look forward to supporting the efforts of the Tahoe Food Hub into the future.

  • The Tahoe Food Hub is being shown by me to many places now in order to network the idea of how we can all help local food. I was also privileged to see the plans for Squaw Valley in the future, which will include our Growing Domes in a wonderful development which includes fresh food and the science behind it.
    Susie is the driving force behind educating the locals about all their growing options. On site they present many different cold frames as well as education about compost building and their amazing Growing Dome. All this in the Sierra Mountains, home of my childhood memories. The inspiration of folks like these can ignite and teach many.Thanks to Bill Kelly and his Mom Deb for their courage, vision and financial support! I was so honored to see everything, and to feel the momentum unfolding. It is still carrying me forward. Puja Dhyan
