Mission Statement

Sprout City Farms cultivates educational urban farms that engage and strengthen communities.

We envision a thriving network of accessible city farms which nourish, and are nourished by, their surrounding community.

Your support helps create healthier, more resilient communities and enables us to:
bring affordable, healthy food to schools, neighborhoods, and beyond;
donate food to community organizations and families in need;
educate youth and adults about food and farming;
build community!

Sprout City Farms relies on donations to continue our grassroots work. As a small nonprofit with a tiny staff of 3, we're a lean operation and you can be sure your dollars directly support our programs and make a difference in the communities in which we work! SCF is in a critical transition period in fall 2017: help us keep farming and reach our food access and education goals for 2018!

Organization History

Sprout City Farms (SCF) evolved out of an edible landscaping company. Throughout 2009, we were approached by a number of community groups interested in urban farming and its potential role in education, food justice and access, economic development, sustainability, community building, and health. While community and school gardens tend to focus more on education and community building, urban farms are unique in their ability to scale up food production and distribution methods to support larger community institutions and whole neighborhoods. It became apparent that an independent non-profit that could work with many diverse stakeholders was needed to develop a sustainable and replicable model for farming underutilized land across the city. Thus, in response to the growing enthusiasm around farming in public spaces and providing access to healthy food, a group of farmers, researchers, teachers, and business leaders began working together to establish Sprout City Farms in January of 2010.

"SCF's commitment to the creation and maintenance of multiple farms is such an important aspect of your work, because you connect three different neighborhoods through your work with healthy food access.
