  • Description:
    Lakeplain Prairie Organic Farm began as a community-supported agricultural farm serving 30 families. Certified organic vegetables were produced and shared between the member families. Vandalia Gardens Farm Cooperative will launch spring of 2009. This altruistic, educational venture will involve participants from several urban agricultural groups, including Vandalia Gardens Urban Farmers, LLC, Lakeplain Prairie Farm, and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Earthworks Urban Farm. Cornelious Williams and Leslie Huffman are at the forefront of the urban farming movement. Capuchin Soup Kitchen (CSK) Earth Works Garden will be working with the farmers to schedule field trips for youth, and guests of the CSK for overall experiential opportunities at the farm. A portion of the harvest will be shared with the CSK to feed the hungry.
