Farm produce enriches the selection of foods, available through Methodist Services’ educational and residential programs. Program participants become more self-reliant by learning how to grow food and engage in food preparation and nutrition workshops. Encouraging healthy eating habits and lifestyles, our farmers grow tomatoes, salad greens, cooking greens, cucumbers, root vegetables, herbs, berries, melons, sunflowers and zinnias.
The Farm is an excellent resource for training young and old in the renewed art of urban farming. Farm participants are encouraged to take part in all aspects of urban farming, from seed to sale. Students are engaged in hands-on planting, growing, harvesting and tasting.
