The EarthLab Farm is Up and Running!

By April 27, 2017 No Comments

Under the able leadership of farmer Jacob Brownwoord, the EarthLab farm is in production. Assisted by dedicated Groundwork staffer Alex Garcia, Jacob is turning the farm into a hub of educational and production activity. He has recruited students, volunteers, and advisers, and developed a business plan under which local farm to table restaurants will utilize the crops.  Come see us!
