Converting Vacant Land Farm Tour

Urban Farms of Central Ohio, an initiative of Mid-Ohio Foodbank, transforms vacant and underutilized sites in underserved neighborhoods into productive, sustainable urban farms that provide low-income, food-insecure residents increased access to fresh, local produce. Tour Wheatland Farm, the second farm site, which is currently being transformed into a thriving farm. The farm operates on one acre of land at a former hospital site that has been repurposed to grow food through a large-scale raised bed growing system and uses a greenhouse for seed starting. The farm sells a portion of its crops to local restaurants and through a veggie box program. In turn, this supports the pay-what-you-can farm stand that provides low-income families with fresh produce.
