Urban Farm

We envision a distributed urban farm in Benicia, where many members of the community produce a wide variety of food in their own backyards, with surplus food to share, swap or barter!  Imagine the increasing availability, right here in Benicia, of an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, raw honey, even fish! We plan to begin monthly Solano Urban Farmers meetings in 2016.
