- preserving a healthy heritage by keeping rural traditions in urban places -

          The Urban Farm has large enclosed gardening areas
          with raised gardening beds, planters, a family learning area,
          and a garden shed all nestled together in a grove of trees
          on top of a quiet hill.

 Schedules, Events, Notices

Evening in the Garden, July 12, 6:30 - 8:00 pm
 Join us for a special Evening in the Garden. There will be music, a DIY project for your gardens, nature tours, and of course a picnic! Feel free to bring along your dinner or a snack to enjoy in the setting sun. Families bringing their kids to CGWU will have time to weed and water before the planned activities begin. 

Volunteer Work Party, July 21, 5:00 - 8:00 pm
On Thursday, July 21 we will be gathering at the farm to lend a hand - mowing, watering, weeding, mulching, you name it, it probably needs doing!

We are beginning to harvest our garlic scapes, kale, swiss chard, and radishes. We also have an array of herbs, dried and fresh for teas, medicinal uses, and cooking! If you are interested in purchasing any veggies or herbs stop by the farm during work hours.
