$1,275 towards $20,000

Agriculture, education, community, and YOU! Please support TLC in purchasing a community hub!

The Buell Foundation is matching $41,000 worth of donations to help TLC purchase the building. Double your donation!

The Learning Council is doing some incredible things in our community! Let's help them purchase a community hub so that more people can enjoy their offerings.

I moved to the North Fork Valley to engage myself in the systems that have supported me my whole life: agriculture, education, community. Working with The Learning Council has proven to be an incredible way to learn more and go deeper into each of these systems and beyond.

Please join me in bringing more of this phenomenal programming to our community! The Learning Council is purchasing Ollie's Ice Cream building and needs more financial support to make it happen. Purchasing this building will help more and more people have access to resources in education, nutrition, and advocacy.

This welcoming space full of community activities will include:

  • Teen-led icecream shop open year-round
  • TLC Kitchen serving weekly community meals at the Trading Post or Arbol Farmers Market while teaching food classes
  • Classroom Space for courses in health, music, dance, agriculture, social and environmental justice, and more
  • Arts for All educational programs in visual arts, music, and performing arts
  • North Fork Community Parade & Marching Band practice and performance venue
  • Diversity Library to peruse a variety of books
  • Working Area for Delta County Coalition Advocating for Radically Equitable Spaces
  • Bike Co-op shop and outdoor space
  • Space for coworking with our partner organizations and colleagues
  • Educational space for the Health and Vitality Council to teach Comprehensive Sexual Health Education to parents and students

Help us reach our goal! Donate today and give the lasting gift of vibrancy and culture to our community!
