Busfarm is our urban farm. Through Busfarm, we seek to accomplish the urban agricultural and educational goals that we have set in place through  Farm to Family. Our plan is to establish an Urban Farm Training Center where we can help educate kids/veterans and others about growing, preparing and eating healthy food and food security issues. We are in the developing stages of this project with lots of project/events on the horizon. Stay tuned for all of the excitement that is to come!
