Community Foodways Farm Tour

August 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The Mansfield Microfarm Project (MMP) is a community-university collaborative to create economic development through sustainable microfarming (small-plot, high-intensity organic agriculture) in post-industrial urban spaces. The main objective is establishing a sustainable community-based training program for aspiring beginning farmers that provides farming and business skills necessary to manage a small-scale intensive farm operation. This program also supports economic development in the low-opportunity North End of Mansfield through two
organizations: the North End Community Improvement Collaborative, Inc. (NECIC) and the Richland Gro-op (RGO).

Attendees can expect to see and discuss best growing procedures, obstacles faced during development, the operation’s processes of marketing and sales, composting procedures, crop plans, how their co-operative operates, and more.
