“Village Gardens Cultivates Community” – Supporting Trends & Confluences for the S2MFC Concept

http://blog.realtimefarms.com/2011/12/26/village-gardens-cultivates-community/

Excerpt:

“One of the most notable projects, Food Works, uses an urban farm to teach young adults from ages 14-21 about farming, business, community, and themselves. The youth operate a 2.5-acre certified organic farm on Sauvie Island where they grow over 40 different types of vegetables. In this past year alone, they produced 12,919 pounds of food. They sold their produce at the Village Market, New Seasons, the St. Johns Farmers Market, and the Portland State University Farmers Market, bringing in a total of $14,000.”
