why we're doing it

The Farm provides fresh affordable food for the community, while providing educational and employment opportunities for youth and adults. The Farm is a base for new experiential school curriculum, serving as an outdoor classroom and a catalyst for education from cooking and nutrition to migrant labor rights and trade policy. Student farmers work during the summer on the farm, learning about sustainable agriculture and community leadership. Produce from the farm  is sold at a low cost to the community through a Community Supported Agriculture program and a weekly farmers market.

Our adult Urban Farm Training Program was created in response to the huge amount of request for adult education on horticulture we have received from the community.
