About the Farm

Backyard Community Farm is an effort to reconnect people with the food systems that sustain them.   It’s an attempt to show just how much a community  can benefit from a concerted effort to grow food in the open spaces around us.  It’s a call to all who wish they new where their food came from, or who just plain appreciate fresh, affordable, organic produce,  to get together and address these very pressing issues.  It’s about food security in a country where most of the food we eat travels over 1,000 miles before it reaches our table.  And of course, it’s about demonstrating that we have all the assets we need to grow our own food right here in our neighborhoods.
