- Four Season Farm Stand
Work began February 2010 on a ½- acre parcel in Manchester, at the corner of 9th & Bainbridge Streets. It is Richmond’s first urban, year-round, highly productive farm. In addition to providing healthy food access to the surrounding neighborhoods, the farm serves as a living classroom where both adults and youth can learn about the topics of farming, soil improvement, nutrition, organic growing and much more.
For information regarding volunteer opportunities at the urban farm, please click here: http://tricyclegardens.org/programs/category/volunteer/
If you are interested in scheduling a field trip / farm tour for your students or community group, please contact Isabel Eljaiek, our Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We also hold tours the first Saturday of every month at 10am. The cost is $5 per person.
The mini-farm includes:
- A compost operation for building healthy soils
- High-yield, intensive gardens creating produce to sell at an on-site farm stand, to our partners in the city and to the surrounding community
- Hoop houses for growing sprouts and salad greens during the winter months
- Hands-on educational programs focusing on food education and eco-literacy
- Job training opportunity for urban farmers
- Earned income for Tricycle Gardens
This model distributes diverse specialty crops directly to consumers at an on-site farm stand and through wholesale distribution to local business partners.
Our farm is made possible by the generous support of Dan Gecker & Robin Miller with Urban Development Associates, LLC. We celebrate their on-going support!
