Your Local, Midtown Farm
Great things are growing at the Kingston YMCA Farm Project! The quarter acre farm uses organic methods to grow fruits and vegetables from arugula to zucchini. The Farm is a place of education and community food production: Young people in the Y's after school programs and Camp Starfish work in the garden, learning first hand how to grow food. The Dig Kids program employs urban youth to work on the farm and at our farm stand. Pre-school aged children are invited to Little Farmers, where we read garden stories, work in the garden, and make a farm snack. We provide hands-in-the-dirt experiences for school groups, camps, and organizations.
The Farm Project also hosts community work days and farm based events, providing opportunities for people of all ages to contribute to the farm. We have two farm stands, a bike powered mobile market and a stationary stand in the lobby of the YMCA. We accept SNAP and WIC and Department of the Aging FMNP checks.
