Raleigh City Farm is a nonprofit urban farm founded in 2011 on a formerly vacant one-acre lot in downtown Raleigh. They believe in the power of urban farms to reduce waste, create healthier communities, and re-connect city-dwellers with healthy food production through more frequent encounters with agriculture.

Work typically involves weeding/mulching, mowing/weed-whacking, composting and general maintenance of common areas of the farm including our raised beds.
