The Yisrael Family Urban Farm seeks to connect local youth to the resources and support they need to grow fresh food. Our motto is ‘Transforming the Hood for Good.’ Through team building exercises, hands on projects, and field trips, Project GOOD (Growing Our Own Destiny) is the vehicle we will use to cultivate the communities of at risk youth and plant fertile seeds in the soil of their minds. We have worked alongside volunteers and neighbors in the construction of several backyard gardens as well as transforming vacant lots into a local garden. Through one-on-one mentorship, skill-building workshops, and neighborhood organizing, The Yisrael Family Urban Farm improves the food security, self-reliance, overall health of our community.
