Street Farm: Growing Food, Jobs, and Hope

strefarm

Street Farm is the inspirational account of residents in the notorious Low Track in Vancouver, British Columbia - one of the worst urban slums in North America - who joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighborhood. It is a story of recovery, of land and food, of people, and of the power of farming and nourishing others as a way to heal our world and ourselves.

During the past seven years, Sole Food Street Farms - now North America’s largest urban farm project - has transformed acres of vacant and contaminated urban land into street farms that grow artisan-quality fruits and vegetables. By providing jobs, agricultural training, and inclusion in a community of farmers and food lovers, the Sole Food project has empowered dozens of individuals with limited resources who are managing addiction and chronic mental health problems.
