ECO City Farms is a nonprofit urban teaching and learning farm in Prince George's County that grows great food, farms and farmers in ways that protect, restore and sustain the natural environment and the health of local communities. Working with area children, youth and adults, ECO educates and trains the next generation of urban farmers, eaters and environmental activists.
What We Do
ECO is a place-based institution with farms that are deeply rooted in two working-class Port Towns communities. We work to address historic injustices while advancing inter-generational and multi-cultural collaboration and respect for all people, species and the environment we share. We increase access to fresh healthy affordable food, and restore the dignity of farmwork and the land itself in a society where manual labor is often stigmatized, green space is often undervalued, eating over-processed food with minimal nutritional value is often the norm, and unhealthy environmental conditions too often prevail.
