The Food Project grows mixed vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits on 40 acres of farmland in greater Boston and on the North Shore of eastern Massachusetts. Just as we strive to bring together youth from the city and suburbs, we also strive to grow food in both the city and suburbs. Each year, we work with over 150 teenagers and thousands of volunteers to farm on 31 acres in rural Lincoln, 7 acres in suburban and rural Beverly, 2.5 acres in urban Boston, and 1 acre in urban Lynn. Between all of these sites, we grow over 250,000 pounds of produce each year. That produce is donated to hunger relief organizations, sold at farmersâ�?�? markets in low-income neighborhoods, and sold through our community supported agriculture programs.
All of The Food Project's vegetables, herbs, and flowers are grown using sustainable growing methods. Sustainable agriculture is the practice of growing food in a way that preserves and enhances the environment, provides economic opportunity and good health for individuals and communities, and connects people to the land around them. We do not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides and distribute our food only to local communities where we work.
