This past year, we expanded to new heights by developing new programs and increasing overall access to fresh food, growing experiences, and education to more groups of people.
We continue to grow because of your generosity and are eager to achieve so much more!
Read on to learn what we accomplished in the past year.
Nearly 3,000 students aged Pre-K to college visit The Urban Farm each year through our farm-based education programs. Through these programs, students can connect to where food comes from covering topics including plant science, nutrition, and environment.
Outdoor experiential learning is essential for creating positive food memories, while sparking curiosity and exploration for young minds. The earlier children are introduced to the taste of fresh foods including vegetables, the more impact on their long term health.
Families need support to grow up healthy eaters. In 2022, we have so many schools, youth groups and scout groups reaching out ready for us to return in the classroom and coming back to the farm!
