Sowing Seeds of Change Urban Farm invites visitors to come and experience the beauty and transformative power of sustainable agriculture and youth empowerment. visitors will learn about their vocational training programs, which offer youth with disabilities and foster youth the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the agricultural industry.

Their sustainable agriculture program covers everything from organic gardening and crop production to greenhouse care and nursery operation, so you can learn about all aspects of small-scale farming or just passively enjoy the beauty they’ve created in this urban oasis.

The City of Long Beach recently received a landmark $30 million federal Reconnecting Communities grant to reconfigure the area around this site into a mega-park and this farm will be at the center of Downtown’s green transformations.

Our Mission

To increase the production, distribution and consumption of healthy, local foods in Long Beach, California

Food in America is broken: Inequalities in food access and overconsumption of processed foods, chemicals and GMOs are affecting public health and the environment in disastrous ways.

Communities are organizing to fix the gap: Local farms, chefs and activists are educating citizens and establishing sustainable, local food growth and distribution. Urban agriculture is becoming an increasingly viable source of fresh affordable foods.

We believe in helping all three parts of a local food economy work together: Eaters (consumers), Feeders (establishments ranging from schools and hospitals to restaurants, distributors and co-operatives) and Seeders (local farms and growers). Eaters, Feeders and Seeders comprise the agricultural cycle of supply, distribution, and demand. If Eaters, Feeders and Seeders can become more connected, both supply and demand for local food production will scale up and become a change agent in public health and the local economy.
