As the snow begins to melt and the promise of Spring is around the corner, Ecolibrium3 is gearing up for a successful summer of growth and change. A big part of this change is our work on the Ecolibrium3 Farm. With the help of our community, we know we can produce a successful harvest.
The Eco3 Farm reimagines and expands the closed farm at Lake Superior College into a community space that will strengthen food access and address health disparities in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Lincoln Park is a food desert, with no access to a grocery store within the neighborhood. With the farm, we can work to provide local, nutritious food to our community members. Along with solving food access issues in the neighborhood, the farm provides other opportunities for growth and success.
By providing urban agriculture and food education programs with a focus on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals through the development of a greenhouse education site; accessible gardening space for those who may face physical barriers to participation due to disability status, age, or income; or space for food production for small food entrepreneurs working in the community kitchen at the Lincoln Park Resilience Hub, the farm helps support a more equitable and inclusive food system in the community.
Although equipment and tools are important in maintaining and sustaining our farm, its support from community members like you that keep us going and growing. Together we can harvest the change we want to see in our neighborhood.
