We’re farmers and educators. Horticulturalists and biologists. Planners and community organizers. We share the belief that agriculture is a vital part of any healthy community, and we’re finding innovative ways to incorporate farming into urban development. The earth we build on is so much more than terra firma for our shelters and structures. Soil sustains life, and the dirt connects us to the world in a way smartphones never will. Most importantly, it gives us a line of sight to the food we put in our bodies. In our view, agriculture is unavoidable—and the Farm Team is meeting the challenge head-on.
