WHO ARE WE? WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We are a small farm on the East Side of Kansas City, Missouri where we grow fruits and vegetables for our neighborhood and city. We're told that we live in a food desert, but we see an oasis with untapped potential.
Our 2/3 acre was neglected for decades after the demolition of the homes built there. At some point it was covered with gravel, almost a foot deep! We aim to restore this small bit of land to be a thriving and integral part of our neighborhood's source of food, community, and healing.
Much of our inspiration is drawn from the life of George Washington Carver; who was an incredible farmer & scientist, but an even more amazing person. You can learn more about him HERE.
We sell online HERE, also to restaurants, and at a market right here on the farm Saturdays 10am - 2pm beginning May 6.
"Whenever the soil is rich, the people flourish, physically and economically. Whenever the soil is wasted, the people are wasted. A poor soil produces only a poor people."
