Tri Cycle Farms describes itself as "a community urban farm working to address food insecurity by growing food and teaching others to grow food."
Friends and neighbors have worked together to reclaim 2 acres of urban landscape, creating a beautiful, productive garden that has produced an amazing amount of good food - all in the first year of the project. Their continuing goal is to "strive to create community by reconnecting with the land, with people, with food, and with each other."
Although Tri Cycle has only been in operation for just over a year, they are already actively involved in teaching gardening and farming skills, donating fresh organic nutrient-dense food to those experiencing food insecurity, hosting classes on the use of fresh produce and herbs, doing community outreach, and sharing their vision for the development of sustainable community-based food system.
