The Farm is an initiative of the Cobblestone Project and is designed to use agriculture to help the under-resourced in our community by focusing on six strategic pillars to include:
Hunger Relief, Education, Economic Development, Community, Food Production and Sustainability.
For the 2011 season, we have two new initiatives launching to include: Harvest Share (Community Supported Agriculture Model Buy One/Give One) and Work Share. During the 2010 season, a Gift Card Program was created to provide free food for students on free or reduced school lunch programs.
The Farm initiative is made possible by the incredible people of NW Arkansas. We are especially grateful to the people of New Heights Church who have donated the use of their land to support the under-resourced in our community.
The dream of the Cobblestone Project is to work towards "A Community Without Need" The strategy to take these ideas and turn them into action will be approached by 1) Identifying Issues of Social Justice 2) Connecting Needs with Willing Resources 3) Fulfilling Needs with Sustainable Solutions The dream or vision of the Cobblestone Project is likely considered unachievable. However, when the concepts of community are redefined to expose and frame the true needs of our neighbors, change happens.
The Farm is located: 5298-5526 W Wedington Dr
Fayetteville, AR 72712
