Farmer's Market

Come summertime, many of the crops we, and the students in our Community Bridges programs planted are ready for harvest!

Most of our produce is either sold at our Farmer's Market locations, local restaurants or is donated locally.

Students in our programs, families, and volunteers help us harvest the crops from May to October. We are beyond grateful our gardens have helped bring the community together!

About Our Produce

All of our produce is grown from a seed that we planted & then transferred to our gardens. We use regenerative farming techniques to ensure our produce is not only nutrient rich, but safe & chemical free. We have partnered with Regenerative Life Farm for guidance while starting the regenerative farming process.

Regenerative farming or agriculture works to "restore soil & ecosystem health, address inequity, & leave our land, waters, & climate in better shape for future generations". Regenerative farming is all about working with nature to improve the land, using technologies that regenerate & revitalize the soil & the environment. This leads to healthy soil capable of producing high quality, nutrient dense food leading to productive farms & healthy communities & economies.

Overall, regenerative farming allows for sustainability by working with the land, not against it. Using these techniques can heal damage caused by industrial agriculture & build a food system that is better for people, animals & the environment!
