Are New York City primary school students ready to replace bologna and Wonder Bread sandwich school lunches with locally grown and harvested organic produce? In December, New York’s Public School 333 cut the ribbon on its new greenhouse and functioning urban farm designed by Kiss+Cathcart, Architects. The greenhouse is set to yield 8,000 pounds of produce each year.

Dig where you live
We are a new farm enterprise that grows lots of food in small city spaces through a network of urban farms.
We envision a small central farm located in downtown Raleigh that grows and markets food in the city. Core operations are self-sufficient, sustained by revenue from sales to Raleigh residents and restaurants. We are part of a sustainable food system that provides competitively priced fresh produce while restoring the environment.

Pat Newton from Wagang (Sipaia) village on the outskirts of Lae has decided to grow rice for his family consumption.
