Contributing to the beauty and growth and success of Raleigh City Farm as a volunteer has been a labor of love. Watching the community dig in and support local food and farmers is the reward!


I love that Raleigh City Farm provides a slice of farm life in the heart of downtown Raleigh and gives our community access to a beautiful, sustainable, and productive green space.  Raleigh City Farm helps us to re-connect to the land.

I support Raleigh City Farm’s mission of connecting urban communities with food and helping us understand and appreciate what we put in our bodies and on our tables. Raleigh City Farm is an exciting way to ensure we have a healthy community.

I love how Raleigh City Farm transformed that little urban street corner into a beautiful working farm that connects our neighbors to the “where, how, and why” of sustainable agriculture.

I love the idea that Raleigh City Farm provides entrepreneurial opportunities for young urban farmers… plus, it is the coolest farm in Raleigh.


As someone who grew up in Raleigh, I feel Raleigh City Farm reflects the personality of our city: progressive, healthy, and entrepreneurially open to new ideas!

I love Raleigh City Farm for being a ‘living teaching lab’ in the middle of our growing urban environment. The Farm connects young farmers to the community and brings neighbors together, while empowering children and adults to learn how to grow their own food. Essentially, Raleigh City Farm is the intersection of food, community and sustainability. I feel so honored to be part of such a great organization.


I am excited by Raleigh City Farm’s mission to educate and engage the community in creating sustainable food systems in the communities in which we live. The skills created and nurtured are not only viable, lifelong skills but they also promote pillars for healthier living and stronger relationships.

The dual role RCF plays in the downtown Raleigh community excites me. It’s both a living classroom where people reconnect with where and how our food is produced, as well as an incubator for urban agriculture entrepreneurs who bring the food supply chain back into the community.
