Urban Community Farm

IWMF’s Urban Community Farm was initiated in 2018 with the goal of advancing urban agriculture. We have a vision for a local, ecologically driven, urban farm that could offer city dwellers the freshest and highest quality fruits and vegetables, year-round, at low prices and employment opportunities. It was inspired by innovation and technology, driven by a sense of duty to address community wellness and ecological issues facing our agricultural system, and motivated by a foundation’s penchant for challenge.
