Fresh Future Farm
Black-led urban farm and grocery store that uses a multi-pronged approach to address health, wealth and quality of life issues.
Our farm is located in the heart of the Chicora/Cherokee neighborhood. The residents are our neighbors. We prioritize them in all aspects of our work. We purposely create a welcoming, safe, inspiring space filled with shiny groceries, friendly faces, and art that celebrates the history of the space we steward. Our neighbors get first access to the Farm’s produce, eggs, and value-added products. Our sliding scale grocery store model allows each resident to define what affordable groceries mean to them.
Substance abuse is exacerbated by the prevalence of liquor stores in low-wealth communities, so we do not sell alcohol or cigarettes. Exposing the challenges people have as a means to garner support is exploitative. You will not see our neighbors' faces used during our fundraising campaigns unless we are celebrating how they enrich our work.
