DEMONSTRATION GARDENS

Growing Hope’s Urban Farm provides an educational and demonstration space where people of all ages and backgrounds learn about, grow, and prepare nourishing food together. Our gardens showcase small-scale organic growing practices for new gardeners by utilizing raised bed and container gardening. We cultivate a children’s garden, market gardens, and operate a year-round hoop house. People from across the region visit our Urban Farm and gardens for community events, trainings, work days, and inspirational time outdoors.
