Jones Valley Urban Farm- A little green amongst the asphalt


A garden plot tended by a group from the YWCA

Welcome back to the Jones Valley Urban Farm.  A non-profit agency that utilizes 3 acres of vancant downtown property.  They raise vegetables and flowers and do a terrific job of educating the community about healthy food.  I've posted about this great place here.  I also stop by their booth at the Pepper Place on Saturdays to buy their organically grown produce.


The JVUF's booth at the Pepper Place Market always has a terrific variety of cut flowers as well as organically grown veggies.
