Urban Teaching Farm
Out of the Garden Project launched The Urban Teaching Farm initiative in November of 2018, with the aim to be a financially, ecologically, and culturally sustainable farm so that we can improve access to fresh foods and provide learning opportunities in our community. We desire to introduce farming and teach the skills of agriculture to people in our community so that they not only can grow their own food but can enjoy the benefits of doing so. Over the last several years, our Urban Teaching Farm has been located in the Warnersville neighborhood at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. While there, we’ve enjoyed hundreds of volunteers and more volunteer hours than we can count. As the farm has grown, we’ve grown in our understanding and appreciation of farming. Currently, we are considering our next steps with our farm evolution and deciding on the best location moving forward. We do know that our Urban Teaching Farm will move to a new location by June of 2022. A search is underway now for the perfect space and as always service-learning will always be a focus of our energy no matter the location.
