Let's Enhance Our Town
Small Town Project
Towns are built around natural resources, commerce, and families. Small towns are an important but often neglected element of rural landscapes and food systems.
The Small Town Project was created in the small town of Rocky Ford, a quaint town in Colorado's Otero County. Founded in 1887, Rocky Ford once thrived as an agricultural and manufacturing town before changes in economic and social infrastructure led to a loss of jobs and population.
Our once booming town now battles the blight of vacant houses, schools and storefronts and the nationwide epidemic of drug use. Our goal is to revitalize the community through ongoing beautification projects and establish programs that will enhance the local economy and sense of community.
"Our mission is to enhance economic and social vitality in Rocky Ford and improve the quality of life for residents of our community."
The Small Town Project's mission is to enhance economic and social vitality in Rocky Ford and improve the quality of life for residents of our community.
Our mission is only possible with the support of people who care. The time and care our volunteers give are a vital resource and continue to give life to our mission.
Your financial support helps The Small Town Project achieve our mission through our programs, and will have an impact on thousands of residents in our community.
