Ms. Julie’s Urban Farming Initiative

9 Ira Avenue, Akron, OH, 44301

This approximately 2 acres of land is comprised of vacant lots that we are leasing from the City of Akron. The products of our garden are used in Ms. Julie’s Kitchen.  In our gardens, we have employed 3 neighborhood boys and 4 summer youth boys,  teaching them farming/gardening skills as well as what to do with the produce once its picked! We compost everything from the restaurant and grow without chemicals.
