completed its fifteenth year of urban agriculture in 2017. Almost every year Grow Hartford harvests approximately 20,000 pounds of produce in urban farm sites, with food distributed through farmers markets, the Hartford Mobile Market, and to service organizations. Our work includes research on viability and availability of ethnic crops for Hartford area consumers. Working with other organizations, we develop and publicize agricultural efforts in Hartford to garner recognition of the overall impact of the activity on food security.
Hartford Food System relies on a collaborative approach, engaging the talents of government policy makers, local non-profit organizations, residents in local communities and neighborhoods, farmers, chefs, educators, and the commercial food sector in change efforts that promote a fair and just food system.
Hartford Food System was founded in 1978. Since then, we have been dedicated to finding long-term solutions for access to affordable and healthy food in our home city of Hartford.
