Open Farms

Nourishing our clients with fresh veggies grown with love

Fresh veggies at Open Farms

Open Arms grows vegetables and herbs for our kitchen and CSA program at multiple urban farm sites in St. Paul and Minneapolis.

By turning vacant lots into vibrant gardens, we are transforming underutilized urban spaces into healthy food to nourish the community. Open Farms engages volunteers and the community in agricultural issues while providing the best nourishment possible to our clients living with life-threatening illnesses.

We use organic methods and permaculture principles in the gardens to work with nature, rather than against it. We also use a variety of different growing techniques to maximize efficiency and space as well as companion planting, crop rotations, cover cropping and green manure as ways to increase productivity, build healthy soil and reduce pest problems. The gardens produce kale, herbs, tomatoes, beans, basil, carrots, onions and many other flavorful and nutritious crops.

Join us as a volunteer at Open Farms! No matter your experience level, we would love your help growing delicious organic produce to nourish our neighbors. Contact Farm Coordinator Kelly Wilson with any questions about farm volunteering or head right to the Volunteer Hub to sign up for a farm shift>>
