The only entity of its kind in Prince George’s County, ECO is an urban teaching farm that grows great food while restoring the environment and the health of local communities. In two working-class Port Towns neighborhoods, where healthy food is scarce, ECO converted neglected lands into community assets: farms that provide affordable, fresh produce through a Community Supported Agriculture program (a weekly, in-season “farm share”) and at their on-farm stand in Bladensburg. They also offer a variety of programs to inspire the next generation of urban farmers, eaters, and activists: environmental education, summer youth employment, year-long urban farmer training and support through ECO’s apprenticeships and certification coursework, and an incubator farm with land and supports to cultivate new farmers. Year-round, hundreds of people attend events and activities, learning the benefits of locally-grown, chemical-free food and responsible stewardship.
