Fleet Farming
Swarm Rides

Our urban agriculture program, Fleet Farming, offers volunteers hands-on opportunities. Learn about sustainable farming and growing your own food. By transforming under-utilized urban lawn spaces into abundant micro-farms, Fleet Farming has created a movement focused on sustainable living and a mindful respect for nature and our Earth.

 

Every 1st Saturday of the month from 9 am – 12 pm leaving from Audubon Park Covenant Church, Fleet Farming welcomes the community to its free Swarm Ride community farming events, where volunteers can travel from house to house tending to front yard farms.
