97% of leafy greens consumed in Colorado are imported from out of state. We need an allied invasion, of like minded citizens, to transform the supply side. Local food production offers one of best kept secrets for community, public health and economic (green) development.
Our community partners include: public, private and philanthropic groups. Our community activation includes: Onsite agrotourism, conferences, events, school (victory) gardens. We welcome your interest and contribution to redeploy local farmers and farms.

The Victory Gardens of WWII were a shining example of civic activation for producing local food. Seventy years later, America is producing the Victory Garden's Sequel to scaling locally grown food. View our TED talk and Colorado Public Radio interview. OVG's national training center is referenced in both along with our working commercial farm Altius Farms.
The Victory Gardens of WWII were a shining example of scaling local food production. 40% of our nation's produce was grown locally, during WWII, due to America's Victory Gardens. Today, America is building the modern day sequel to the Victory Gardens with closed environment agriculture [CEA]. Greenhouse farming is reshaping the future and redeploying the American farm.
OVG trains students in state-of-the-art vertical growing and greenhouse farming techniques. If you would like to learn more or wish to become a candidate for our inaugural class email us.
