Jones Valley Teaching Farm is not just a place where delicious food grows

Our mission, put simply, is to make our community a healthier place. And our focus is empowering future generations with an education to eat smarter, think healthier—and live better.

After a winter of construction, a spring of growth and a summer of produce, we're taking the sign down today. Farm lab has come indeed @ Oliver. And now we're looking at you, Avondale!
Our community garden planting day kicked off at 9 am and Annie was at the farm before 8. A seasoned gardener knows how to beat the heat. Ms. Annie Poe, her sister Bessie and nephew James have been members of our community garden for six years.
