Urban Farm Collective Tour
Saturday, August 25, 2018
Initially comprised of neighborhood yard gardens, Urban Earth Farms expanded their farm into a rubble-filled vacant lot, making new connections with their diverse communit in the process. Every town has empty lots, but how do you turn that negative into a positive growing environment? Learn the history of Enright Ridge Urban Eco-Village, an intentional community in Price Hill on Cincinnati's westside. Tour the rejuvenated gardens in neighbor's backyards, the original community garden plot, the repurposed greenhouse, and see what is underway for the new site, the former location of a municipal ice house. Visit their community supported agriculture distribution and greenhouse marketplace, poised to become a food hub for this underserved community.
RSVP to Urban Earth Farms at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 18.
