After an amazing first growing season in 2014, Sprout City Farms, the City of Lakewood, and the community around Mountair Park will be working together to expand MAP Community Farm this year.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to making MAP Community Farm a success last year! We grew over 6,000 pounds of food that was distributed through the CSA, farm stand and donations to Mountair Christian Church and Molholm Elementary School food pantries. Exciting plans are underway for building out a second parcel of land in the park in 2015.
A community advisory committee is helping guide expansion 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.
