Tri Cycle Farms is creating, through community engagement, an edible sustainable urban farm park where we cherish and steward education, community and soil. Share the earth, share the crop, and share this beautiful place. Tri CycleFarms is a community urban farm working to address food insecurity by growing food and teaching others to grow food in a productive garden on 2 acres of land in the heart of Fayetteville.
Some of they create community are:
- Teaching gardening and farming skills in a relaxed, friendly, fun environment.
- Impacting community meals by donating our fresh, chemical-free, nutrient-dense produce, as well as our time and cooking skills, to bring healthful nourishment to those experiencing food insecurity.
- Doing community outreach through multiple agencies, as well as by knocking on doors to get our neighbors involved and letting them know we are here to help.
- Maintaining an attitude of oneness, in the knowledge that the line between food security and food insecurity is a fine line and any one of us can find ourselves crossing that line due to circumstances beyond our control. Learning to grow food is a way to cross the line back to food security.
- Sharing our vision of a sustainable future with our neighbors.
The 2019 Fayetteville Springfest is scheduled for April 20th on Dickson Street. Here is the Official Facebook Event
