About Us
Sprout City Farms is a nonprofit farming organization founded in 2010 with community farm sites in Denver, Lakewood, and Longmont. SCF builds innovative educational farms to engage communities, strengthen local resiliency, and root farmers in the city. We envision a thriving local food system supported by a network of accessible farms which nourish, and are nourished by, their surrounding communities.
Our farms serve as a platform for education, health, food justice advocacy, ecological stewardship, community wealth building, vocational training, and neighborhood resiliency. Our core programming focuses on food access (55% of our harvest), education (programs for youth, community, and farmer training), and community engagement. We use regenerative and organic practices (not certified organic) to grow our produce sustainably and in harmony with nature, including no-till, cover cropping, crop rotations, composting, planting for pollinators, drip irrigation, seed saving, and more.
