Sprout City Farms, the City of Lakewood, and the community around Mountair Park are working to create a brand new farm this year. MAP Community Farm will be a resource for education, food access and community collaboration.
Thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who contributed to making MAP Community Farm a reality this year! We reached our Kickstarter goal and also raised funds through events including the Sprout Down and Valentine’s Prom.
A community advisory committee is helping guide development of the Mountair Park Community Farm and its programs. Possible food access efforts include farm to cafeteria programs for nearby schools, a donation-based farm stand, free and work shares in the CSA program, and donations to hunger relief organizations. Proposed educational opportunities include programs for local schools, community workshops, and an internship program.
