Garfield Community Farm History
Garfield Farm is a three acre urban farm existing on three city blocks where around twenty five homes once existed.  This land and soil of the farm were highly degraded after the homes were torn down and topsoil eroded away. Today, on this large tract of abandoned urban land, is a landscape of biodiversity, producing thousands of pounds of food every year and attracting native birds and wildlife. Through grassroots community activism the farm has been shaped into a hub of permaculture education for children and adults, a place where neighbors can get seasonal organic produce and people can come together.
