Mission: Our goal is to close the gap on health disparities, and increase access to affordable, nutritious, locally-grown, produce for families living in and around Franklin Field, and greater Boston.
Results: This year, we were able to:
• Sell over 12,000 seedlings through our seedling coop.
• Sell almost 10,000 lbs of food through our farm stand and farmer’s market
• Donate over 2,000 lbs of food to ReVision Family Home the Boston Medical Center food pantry, and other community programs
• Distribute over 10,000 lbs of food to our CSA (Community Support Agriculture) share members
• Harvest nearly 5,000 lbs of food from our land in Dorchester - almost 10,000 servings of fresh vegetables
• Train and host 6 youth interns and a youth coordinator for seven weeks in the summer
Geographic areas served: Primarily Dorchester, as well as Mattapan, Roxbury, and the Boston Metro Area
Programs: Through our farm, we run three projects: the Experiential Education & Job Training Programs, ReVision Farm Stand, and Community Supported Agriculture.
I discovered ReVision Urban Farm about 10 years ago. The concept of community-supported agriculture (CSA) was still pretty uncommon, and this was one of the few places doing it in the Boston area. Plus, my purchase of a weekly vegetable share supported a shelter for women and young children. It's an outstanding win-win that has only gotten better since ReVision became part of Victory Programs.
