Urban Patchwork

(Austin,TX)

Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms provide fresh, affordable food for Austin one neighborhood at a time. We believe community is the backbone of health, security and sustainability. The Urban Patchwork network of small community based farms turns unused yard space into farmland that provides fresh, organically grown produce and eggs to the nearby residents of each neighborhood farm. Austin residents can become members of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program as well as purchase produce through local markets and businesses. The Urban Patchwork network not only provides food for our bodies, we offer farm start-up programs; workshops for residents on nutrition, home food production and storage; marketing and job creation; and more. In Urban Patchwork, your farmers are your neighbors. Each Urban Patchwork neighborhood farm has its own farmer and coordinator hired from within it�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?s neighborhood boundaries. One or two farmers tend all the plots and are available for questions and visits to the demonstration plots. We use NO genetically modified seeds, NO chemical pesticides and NO herbicides. We use sustainable methods of farming that leave a small footprint and give back to the land rather than take away.
