City Grown is only as successful as the community that we are a part of and that supports us. By choosing to farm in the city, we have chosen to share what we are doing intimately with our neighbors. We want to share the joy of growing and producing our food with our community. Transparency in our food systems has largely been lost as our food has become more complicated, more industrialized and produced farther from our tables. We aim to reverse this trend and welcome your participation in your food production.
We have many opportunities for people who are interested in City Grown, whether or not you have a hankering for getting your hands dirty!
Let’s Grow Together!
Your Land. We work with wonderful land owners who have partnered with us to allow us to farm in their backyards and unused spaces. Land partners are what makes this farm possible. In exchange for the use of the space, we provide our land partners with a share of the produce throughout the farm season. If you have land you would like to see utilized for our purposes and you live in Wallingford/Ballard/Tangletown/Crown Hill, we want to talk with you about a partnership. To make City Grown a viable farm, we must work with certain plot constraints. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer. Help on the farm preparing new beds, weeding, planting, harvesting, and doing many other projects. We have regular Wednesday and Thursday work parties. This is an excellent way to learn new skills and get your hands dirty. Always remember to bring a lunch and gloves to work days. Email us if you’re interested.
Donate. We are always looking for tools, season extension equipment, or simply a monetary contribution. Everything helps when you’re a farmer! Donate today.
