Posted on June 10, 2024 by Alicia Alferman

On May 20, Cultivate KC, Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council, Young Family Farm, Longfellow Farm, and Bread and Roses Farm co-hosted the Growing in Community workshop. This event featured discussion about the vital role neighborhood relationships play in the success of urban farms.

Attendees from a variety of backgrounds, including farmers and community members, developed strategies for engaging one’s neighbors throughout the development of a successful, thriving urban farm. Thank you to the presenters who did a fantastic job of creating a safe space for honest, vulnerable discussions and facilitated everyone to help each other navigate common issues.
