School Champion Garden 2 Table
Our mission is pure and simple. We're committed to creating a sustainable, local food system that builds community, improves access to healthy food, and teaches residents to cultivate their own fruits and vegetables. We work with apartment and home owners to provide shared gardening spaces and agricultural education to households that don't have means to grow their own food. By selling the produce we grow at our farm, we plan to create stable funding so our staff can offer more classes, pick more fruit trees, and build more neighborhood gardens. We believe that this model—with a farm as an anchor, surrounded with neighborhood gardens and fruit harvesting events—can act as the foundation of a self-sustaining local food system that can be replicated throughout the city. We see our farm not only as a source of sustenance, but as a pathway to economic development.
