SVdP's Urban Farm Lays Down New Roots

We are excited to announce the grand opening of the Rob and Melani Walton Urban Farm

Tree of Hope at the Rob and Melani Walton Urban Farm

After a year of preparation, the newly expanded Rob and Melani Walton Urban Farm is officially open! From entrance to exit, this one-acre lot has been completely revitalized. New pathways invite visitors to explore the farm’s expanded offerings which include an updated aquaponics system and new public gathering spaces where the community can attend classes and demonstrations on sustainable practices.

To celebrate the grand opening, St. Vincent de Paul held a special celebration complete with farm fresh refreshments, composting demonstrations, tours of our aquaponics greenhouse and more. We invite you to spend a day volunteering in our new farm!
