The Farm is designed to use sustainable agriculture to help the under resourced in our community by focusing on four strategic pillars: Economic Development, Education, Hunger Relief and Community.
The Farm is an initiative of the Cobblestone Project and is designed to use agriculture to help the under-resourced in our community by focusing on six strategic pillars to include:
Hunger Relief, Education, Economic Development, Community, Food Production and Sustainability.
Starting in 2011, we launched two new initiatives to include: Harvest Share (Community Supported Agriculture Model Buy One/Give One) and Work Share. During the 2010 season, a Gift Card Program was created to provide free food for students on free or reduced school lunch programs.
The Farm initiative is made possible by the incredible people of NW Arkansas. We are especially grateful to the people of New Heights Church who have donated the use of their land to support the under-resourced in our community. The Farm initiative began as a result of the 1,287 Stand Up and Be Counted Homelessness initiative when Mark Horvath’s (founder InvisiblePeople.tv) visited NW Arkansas.
This created an opportunity for the Cobblestone Project to collaborate with World Garden on their feeding initiative now known as The Cafe, expand the Gathering & Distribution initiative and form a new initiative known as The Farm.
