Franklinton Farms

Started in 2007 as a lone community garden on a small vacant lot, Franklinton Farms has since developed into a thriving network of gardens and food production sites scattered throughout the neighborhood’s urban landscape.

In addition to our organic food production efforts, we offer a wide range of garden-based activities, educational programs, and employment opportunities in order to empower neighbors and build a healthy community.

I enjoyed helping in the gardens and thought the time was well spent and the event was organized. It was a great weather day to do it, and I'd volunteer again!
