FOC holds semiannual meetings at the school, typically in October and June. Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media to stay up to date!
Our events are staggered throughout the year, with a mix of community building and fundraising. Where possible, we partner with local businesses so that our neighborhood can benefit, too.
The calendar below is a tentative framework of annual events. Details for confirmed events will be forthcoming.
If you have a suggestion for a fundraiser or community building event, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you!

They provide hands-on gardening lessons, discussions, arts and crafts and games centered around nutrition, community and environmental stewardship.
