2020 Annual Report

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Hidden Villa!

It was a real stretch…

but we got through it because of EWE!

Thanks to your phenomenal support, in 2020, we were able to:

  • Increase donations of our fresh, organic produce to the Community Services Agency of Mountain View. Throughout much of the pandemic, we were the only organization that was able to provide fresh fruits and vegetables due to updated safety protocols.
  • Pivot to an online experience for our place-based education learning. We offered virtual field trips and an online World of Wonder Series to support teachers during this unusual time when students were unable to attend.
  • Provide a safe and healing space for visitors to enjoy throughout much of the Pandemic. We shifted to an online reservation system to limit access to offer a safer experience for all visitors.
  • Define Hidden Villa’s impact as the needs of the community change. Hidden Villa staff, board, volunteers, and community participated in an extensive visioning process that declared four impact areas: mitigation of climate change; a healthy local food system; place-based outdoor education for all; and a just and antiracist society. These pillars delineate our direction in our new Strategic Plan 2021-2024.
