Poplar: Community Learning Farm Fills Need, Establishes Roots

The oldest of its three farms was founded in 2005 next to the East Poplar Playground on 8th Street, between Brown and Poplar streets. The farm partners with the nearby recreation center, providing produce for the meals for after-school programs and summer camps. It also has community garden plots available for rent to nearby residents who want to grow their own food and a weekly farmer’s market that begins in the spring.
