ICG’s Farm Stand is run by our Teen Urban Farmers who sell fresh organic produce and cut flowers during July and August. It begins on Wednesday, June 27th, from 3-6 PM and continues every Wednesday (except July 4th) until August 29th.
ICG’s Farm Stand provides infrastructure for our Teen Urban Farmers (TUF) to learn the entrepreneurial and horticulture skills required to run a market garden. And, it provides a place for community members and visitors to stop by every week during July and August to purchase fresh produce, herbs, and cut flowers from the teens who grow them. All produce is grown organically and sustainably by youth and teens.
TUF are currently selling Ithaca Bakery iced coffee and Emmy’s Organics macaroons at the Farm Stand, Monday through Friday, 8:30am until it’s gone. We are delighted to collaborate with both Emmy’s and Ithaca Bakery to make our new micro-enterprise pilot a success. It’s self-serve – be sure to bring your own cup. And feel free to enjoy your refreshments on our new patio area thanks to generous support from Haslinger Foundation. In addition, we will be selling new ICG merchandise.
All proceeds from sales go to support Teen Urban Farmers.
Thanks to Kristen McClellan and Snappy Screens for the donation of the structure, Alan Vogel and friends for retrofitting the shed into a functioning Farm Stand, and Steve Austin for installing a rain catchment system with teens.
