Groundwork Elizabeth MicroFarm
The Elizabeth MicroFarm is located behind the Elmora Branch Library. The farm serves as an educational resource providing service-based learning opportunities for the surrounding community.
Farm & Garden Adventures advocate for the right of students of all ages to play, discover and interact in a safe, outdoor farm environment while learning how to garden, harvest and prepare foods they have grown.
Our programs address the needs on our at-risk communities for healthy, locally grown, nutritious foods, as it engages nutritionally-challenged students in curriculum that promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles – directly counteracting the lack of physical activity, poor nutritional habits and lack of nutritional education that is prevalent in low income urban communities.
