The Kula Urban Farm project is an expansion of the Kula Café. Farms operating in an urban environment benefit from a greater degree of consumer and other stakeholder involvement than usual – resulting in a stronger consumer-producer relationship.

FRESH FARM PRODUCE

Produce grown at the farm is available to the general public for purchase year-round in our garden and greenhouse. Stop by the urban farm, café or our table at a local farmers market for more information on available produce and pricing.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”34″ down=”0″][vc_column_text]

URBAN FARM GROWING

Fruits and vegetables in the greenhouse are grown using hydroponic techniques to create a year round growing environment. During non-winter months, 4 to 8 foot raised beds are cultivated.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”34″ down=”0″][vc_column_text]

COMMUNITY EDUCATION

Gardens are placed along the edges of the plot to create an engaging place to gain passer-by interest.  Classes for adults and children are conducted on healthy eating and different gardening topics, during the growing season.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” use_row_as_full_screen_section_slide=”no” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column_inner][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_text_separator title=”HUGE THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS” text_in_box=”yes” text_position=”center” box_border_width=”3″ box_border_style=”solid” line_color=”#000000″ line_thickness=”3″ line_border_style=”solid” line_dots=”no” title_color=”#000000″ box_border_color=”#000000″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” video=”” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” use_row_as_full_screen_section_slide=”no” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”972″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.cityofasburypark.com”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”966″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://foodforthoughtap.com”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”969″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.tpi.org/who-we-serve/elizabeth-and-barets-o-benjamin-foundation “][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”968″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.hcdnnj.org/nrtc “][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” use_row_as_full_screen_section_slide=”no” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”973″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.pepsico.com”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”967″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.nj.gov/state/programs/dos_program_faith_based.html”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”974″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://www.springlake5.org”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”971″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”http://fdnweb.org/borden/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” video=”” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”970″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” eltd_css_animation=”” link=”https://www.jerseymikes.com”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” video=”” css_animation=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”16″ down=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
