Farm Tours

Food Justice. Food Sovereignty. Regenerative Agriculture.

At the Yisrael Family Urban Farm, we seek to deepen our communities’ connection to nature, health and ancestral knowledge. Part of this work involves educating youth and adults about the importance of reclaiming our food system. Through a decolonized lens, our educational farm tours aim to shed light on the history of our current industrialized food system and collective solutions to build a sustainable future. The following activities are available for students, faculty and families. If you don’t find an option that meets your objectives, we will be happy to help arrange a program that will work for you!
