HISTORY

The farm began in 2010 when Reservoir Hill residents converted a vacant lot into an active urban farm with the help of hundreds of volunteers. The continued support of neighbors and the wider community has spirited our vision to improve access to healthy food. 

 

OUR MISSION


Whitelock Community Farm is a vibrant open space that grows food and activates community to promote social equity in the neighborhood.

We work to:

  • Create educational, skill building, and leadership development opportunities
     
  • Increase access to healthy, affordable food
     
  • Foster positive community activity
     
  • Promote dialogue about food access, neighborhood development, and environmental justice
