Farmory Education and Marketing Outreach Coordinator
 
 
 
The Farmory is a 501c3 nonprofit indoor, organic, urban farm with a social mission. Our mission is to advance economic self-sufficiency, increase health and well-being, and improve the environment by providing opportunities in sustainable agriculture. We accomplish our mission through education, outreach, and service learning programs that bring students and adults of all ages and abilities into our working aquaponics farm and fish hatchery. The Farmory is providing a real living laboratory for sustainable agriculture that captures the imagination of youth and elders alike; and, provides points of entry to the field for anyone, no matter their skills or abilities. We address core issues of poverty, health, and nutrition by teaching community residents how to grow and prepare healthy, nutritious food, which reduces the strain on grocery budget and contributes to positive health outcomes and obesity reduction.
