Guilford Urban Farming Initiative

The Guilford Urban Farming Initiative addresses food insecurity through community engagement, partnership development, and sustainable practices. Donated property will be transformed into a local urban farm to provide area residents access to healthy foods, as they learn about local agriculture issues, training and workforce development opportunities, and available entrepreneurial activities. The farm targets providing 1,056 families with fresh produce at little or no cost while encouraging innovation and resilience among families of need in the community.
