Raleigh City Farm’s vision is a community engaged in a vibrant, sustainable food system reinforced by a network of thriving farmers.
We believe in Raleigh
Raleigh City Farm is a nonprofit urban farm founded in 2011 on a formerly vacant one-acre lot in downtown Raleigh. We believe in the power of urban farms to reduce waste, create healthier communities, and re-connect city-dwellers with healthy food production through more frequent encounters with agriculture.
We believe that turning vacant lots into productive, nourishing farmland can create something from nothing – an amenity from an eyesore.
We invite our community to “dig in” and be a part of our big vision by signing up for a workshop, taking a tour, attending a special event, and volunteering to help maintain our farm site.
