Cultural Crossroads owns and manages a four acre estate called The Moess Center for the Arts & City Farm. They utilize this lush, green food forest by providing the city with it's only Farmers Market. Spring and summers are spent sharing gardening experiences, providing workshops on gardening and offering up space on the four acres for a community garden. We also offer summer art camps for kids called "Earth Camp."
While the main mission of Cultural Crossroads is to Unite ALL people through the arts, we have found that the mix of arts and agriculture was a natural for us. Our annual Spring Arts Festival "ChickenStock" is held on the grounds every April providing exposure to the arts in a variety of disciplines. With no arts curriculum in our elementary schools, our arts festival provides many of our local children with their first 'real art experience. We are a 501(c)3 and are governed by an all volunteer board of directors and executive director. With no paid staff, we give 100% of our donations to projects and programs that support the arts.
