Our Community

Both the people (as well as the plants) within our community are diverse and vibrant. We represent multiple countries, cultures, and age ranges. People are often surprised to discover plants used in their homeland at tBUG. We have edible plants which are used around the world for traditional dishes. Our vibrant community is made up of the following interwoven groups:

Families and Children

Families and children are a major focus because, well – they are our future! (We must admit we’re also consistently amazed and inspired at their creativity, ideas, speed, and eagerness to share). Children are highly encouraged to participate and lead at tBUG. Families: discover how to start or expand your own mini farm, with your children at the design helm! Growing, harvesting, cooking, and eating nutritious food, and caring for plants and the earth are just a few of the magical things that happen at tBUG. We invite you and your children to become one of our many tBUG food ambassadors! We are always learning from one another.
