The farm is conducting monthly workshops on various projects developing at the Emile location.
The benefits of attending the workshops at the farm are that a true demonstration on how the technology of sustainability works. The farm has a number of projects from rainwater catchment to a 11,000 gallon fish tank raising tilapia, vermaculture composting using red wriggle, bee-keeping, and raising chickens for egg production. We do workshops that illustrate how a diversified production micro farm can be outfitted for food production. The Emile Community Educational Farm is a experience in innovation. Our workshops are for people who want to put a full line of sustainable ideas into action.
The intent of the Emile Urban Farm Project in Fifth Ward is demonstrate how farming communities can build resources to address social needs. We address food insecurities by reintroducing farming back to neighborhoods. We educate to develop skill sets that further our community’s goal of self reliance.
The farm is open usually from 9am until 6pm Monday thru Saturday.
