About Us


In the spring of 2000, pastor Reverend Bertha L. Carter challenged her North End congregation to address the neighborhood’s need for food security by establishing the Oakland Avenue Urban Farm.  By growing healthy food, offering mentorships, conducting educational programs, supporting outdoor gathering and art spaces, and generating jobs, the Farm has created a  vibrant civic commons.


To contribute to the sustainability of the Northend Historic Community by providing a healthy lifestyle with diverse cultural, physical, social, and educational programs.


We intend to develop the Northend Historic Community by implementing interactive youth development programs for students 12 to 24 ages, developing green jobs and providing quality housing, providing resources for underserved and supporting healthy lifestyles through sustainable agriculture, education, and beautification of the community.
