New City School
Beginning in 2012, 4th graders from New City School got involved. An alley connects students with the farm — a 6:00 minute walk . Students participate and help germinate seeds, plant, harvest, deliver and serve the Farm’s bounty to the clients at the food pantries.
The students particularly like serving the clients, the pop corn, and watermelon that they have grown.
City of St. Louis
From our beginning Lyda Krewson, Mayor of the City of Saint Louis, has been a huge fan of the farm. She has provided jersey barriers and speed limit signs to ensure the safety of the children.
To date the forestry division of the City of St. Louis has provided 26 tons of organic compost and 4 tons of freshly recycled Christmas trees chips—smells heavenly when the paths are lined with Christmas.
Carpenters Union Trade School
In order to gain entrance into the Carpenters Union in St. Louis, an apprentice must complete community service. Cameron Weiss completed his community service building for the farm a grape arbor and two Alaskan benches used for work and play by both children and adults.
