About CAC Beardsley Farm:
CAC Beardsley Community Farm has promoted food security and sustainable urban agriculture through practice, education, and community outreach for 20 years. Beardsley Farm grows and donates over 10,000 pounds of produce annually to local food pantries, and a women's shelter. The farm additionally offers extensive child, youth, and adult education programming on growing food organically.
