Our community inspires us. It is our pleasure to invest in the businesses and organizations that keep Santa Fe progressive, thriving, and dedicated to serving each other and our environment.
At Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen, we are committed to composting, recycling, knowing where our products come from, and making choices that are responsible to our business, our customers, and our world.
2% Cash Pay Proceeds
When you pay with cash at Sweetwater, you keep your money LOCAL. We donate 2% of all of our cash sales to a different local non-profit organization each month. In the month of April we are proud to support the Academy for the Love of Learning!
About the Academy for the Love of Learning
The mission of the Academy for the Love of Learning is to awaken, enliven, nurture and sustain the natural love of learning in people of all ages. We seek to encourage and cultivate the powers of critical thought, imagination, curiosity, innate sense of purpose, wonder and inspiration, and an ongoing awakening of the heart.
To achieve our mission, the Academy exists as a non-profit educational organization developing and disseminating a transformative curriculum and methodology – our learning field inquiry approach to learning – through an integrated set of programs, conferences, organizational practices and research. The overarching intent of our work is to help stimulate and support the rebirth and renewal of learning and education in America. In the words of American poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, we are seeking to foster a perpetual “rebirth of wonder.”
One of their programs, El Otro Lado in the Schools, brings the class room alive and is changing culture in the classrooms, nurturing connection, empathy and respect as teachers and students see one another in new ways through story-based, arts-rich experiential learning in Santa Fe Public Schools.
