The Heart of the Vita Health & Wellness District

The Farm had another banner season of healthy crops, weather & eager volunteers!

The farm had over 700 volunteers from corporations, schools and other groups in the community. We harvested over two tons of organic fruits, herbs and 100 varieties of vegetables, including 12 different types of peppers, grown to the delight of our culturally diverse community. Also, the farm donated 1,000+ pounds to local food pantries and nonprofits. Through ongoing efforts with our compost initiative, the farm has diverted over 5,000 pounds of waste from landfills. The farm hosted gardening and health classes, seasonal events and multiple educational groups.

Be sure to get your boots ready and link to us on Facebook for the 2018 Spring Season!
