‘The Farm is a Park!’ Days

Some days Food Literacy Center’s outdoor space is a farm, other days it’s a classroom, and sometimes it’s a public park – and you’re invited to visit!

Located directly behind our cooking school is a 1-acre multi-use farm, garden, and outdoor classroom designed to improve children’s health. It’s a place for students and families to learn play, and explore and complements our existing cooking and nutrition programs by providing access to and education around nature, gardening and farming. 

The center was built here, in part, to protect this open space as a public park to be enjoyed by neighbors near and far.

We invite you to visit Food Literacy Center’s urban farm during ‘The Farm is a Park’ Days!

The public park will be open during these times. Bring a book, wander the grounds, explore! All are welcome.
