Vision: Sprout City Farms (SCF) envisions a thriving local food system within the Denver metro area supported by a network of accessible city farms which nourish, and are nourished by, their surrounding community.
Mission: Sprout City Farms cultivates urban farms on underutilized land, rooting community farms in the city and bringing good food to neighborhoods.
Our work is guided by the following core values:
Healthy Food Access: To develop healthier individuals, families, and communities, all people should have access to fresh, locally grown, organic foods.
Education, Participation, and Awareness: Everyone should know where their food comes from, as well as have access to opportunities to learn how to produce it themselves. By visiting or participating at a community farm, people will expand their food knowledge, increasing the likelihood of making healthy food choices. We believe that this will encourage the development of policies that support the future viability of a sustainable and fair urban farming economy.
Ecological Stewardship: In order to support the long-term sustainability of initiatives that seek to address food security, farming methods need to appropriately harmonize with the local ecosystem.
