Farmer-In-Residence Program Launch

This past Saturday was the official launch of the Urban Sprouts Farmer-In-Residence program! Two families from our partner school, International Studies Academy, spent the morning breaking ground on their campus plots. From now through summer these inaugural families will plant, tend, and harvest their own food on the school campus. Throughout the season we hope to not only grow food but share recipes, stories, and experiences from our diverse food heritage.

Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day in the City and a perfect day to prepare the beds, spread compost, and make our crop plans.

We are so excited to be able to offer a program to further engage the students and families that we work with.

We will be breaking ground on our second Farmer-In-Residence site, June Jordan School for Equity, in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more details.
