Hopes for Urban Farm Underway

As we move into July, Urban Harvest has been working diligently to provide the people of Greensboro with an comprehensive idea of who we are, what we’ve done, and where we want to go. As a local non-profit, Urban Harvest envisions a Greensboro that can ultimately provide equal access to healthy food for all citizens in a sustainable manner. 

Discussion with Urban Harvest Organizers and City Officials around Urban Harvest’s vision has already initiated through the City’s Redevelopment Commission. This Board is responsible for researching and discussing the proper path for development of Greensboro’s vacant spaces and lots.

In the upcoming weeks, Urban Harvest will be working alongside the Redevelopment Commission in developing a proposal of an urban micro-farm for the City Council. The following is an article published by the News and Record outlining the process discussed above.

Engaging and serving the community is the primary priority of the proposed Urban Farm; therefore  we want to hear from you. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to weigh in on the vision and  become involved, please contact Urban Harvest Organizers at urbanharvest.gso@gmail.com.
