Mission Statement

Alleycat Acres reconnects people, place, and produce by transforming underutilized space into a network of neighborhood run farms.

Description

In other words, we make farms happen. Food is more than what we eat: it’s a medium through which we can forge intimate, meaningful relationships between people and place. Farming is a medium that reconnects us, both mentally and physically, to our surroundings. Our entire operation is based on the collective belief that urban food systems are key in creating healthy communities.

Our produce is distributed between our volunteers who worked for the day. When we have a surplus, it is given to the neighborhood food bank. Join us at one of our weekly work parties at any of our four farms. All ages and abilities are welcome - our farm coordinators will be on site to walk you through tasks and teach you everything they know about urban gardening!
