Fighting Hunger One CityFARM at a time!
Fighting hunger one CityFARM at a time!
CityFARM wants to save the world by furthering the urban agriculture movement and improve our community by alleviating hunger in southeastern Michigan. We would like to start an organic urban farm in Ypsilanti, MI. We are very fortunate because the land was donated for the farm, but we need help with the transformation from lawn to urban farm. All the produce that is grown on the Adams Street FARM in Ypsilanti, MI will be donated to Food Gatherers--a non-profit organization that helps to feed the hungry in Washtenaw County. This urban farm will help fight hunger and improve the surrounding community.
Supplies needed for the transformation include a fence, raised beds, soil and compost, irrigation systems, water catchment, seeds/seedlings, and farming tools. The Adams Street FARM will be comprised of a series of raised beds that we will grow a variety of fruits and vegetables for fresh and local food donations.
CityFARM specializes in the installation of urban farms into private and commercial properties. We believe that everyone should have access to healthy food. For every urban garden installed by CityFARM will install a garden of the same size at Adams Street FARM and donate the food to a local food distribution center like Food Gatherers or another non profit dedicated to feeding the hungry.
If you would like to visit Adams Street or help out with our transformation we would love to have you! Work is expected to start in late March (if the Michigan weather cooperates). Adams Street Farm is located at 103 N. Adams in Ypsilanti, MI.
