The Talking Farm – http://www.thetalkingfarm.org
TTF began in 2006 out of the grassroots efforts to improve our food system. We are a local leader in urban agriculture with hands-on experiential educational programs at schools, community organizations, and in our 2.75-acre urban farm, the Howard Street Farm. Since we began developing our urban farm in 2010, we have grown significantly, developing more than 1.5 acres of farmland and administering 6 educational programs. TTF produces over 16,000 pounds of produce every year that it distributes to the community through restaurants, a membership program, farmers’ markets, and food kitchens.
Our mission is to provide education, example, and hands-on experience to members of the community to expand the awareness, importance, and availability of food grown sustainably. TTF is focused on educational programming and the cultivation of the Howard Street Farm, which serves as a hub devoted to sustainable, in-ground produce growth with three hoop houses and 6 grow fields. Howard Street Farm also hosts events throughout the growing season.
