Rockwood Urban Farm is Expanding

Hugging CarrotsDecember 24, 2013

We are delighted to share some great news: We have secured two more acres for our upcoming growing season & beyond! One parcel, .9  of an acre, is  located on 139th & Stark, just four blocks from our current plot. The other acre is 11 miles east in Orient and part of a farm incubator program. There are obvious advantages and disadvantages to each of our land situations but regardless we are beyond excited to be growing and to be able to expand our food & flower offerings for  2014!

For 2014, Rockwood Urban Farm will have  30 vegetable shares, 15 food preservation shares, an unlimited number of flower shares, and MARKET BUCKS available!  You can mix and match options for discounts and to create the farm direct relationship of your dreams.
