“The Urban Farm serves as a gathering place for everyone,” said Nguyen. “In our garden plot, we had over 25 families participate, planting items like beans, lettuce, arugula, kale, beets, swiss chard, peas, onions, dill, and cilantro.. We were lucky to be able to harvest over 200 of produce last year, and this year is shaping up to be the same!”
Like many other farmers at the farm, Nugyen credits the Urban Farm for strengthening her mental and physical well-being. From hosting Saturday picnics with other community members, to being able to watch our children make new connections and memories through the hands-on children programming that the farm offers, Nugyen is thankful for the opportunity to continue to expand her community through the Urban Farm.
“For many of us, the Urban Farm serves as a place that continues to give us countless moments of joy and blessings. I am so excited for the future of this space and the opportunity that arises with each new growing season.”
