About Us / Emerald Street Urban Farm History: Emerald Street Urban Farm Project is a neighborhood urban farm and garden founded in 2009. With the help and support of our neighbors we were able to reclaim 5 vacant lots on the corner of Emerald and Dauphin Streets. The space was originally filled with trash, a broken VW van and overgrown with weeds.Now more than half the space is used as community farm. We also have a community garden for neighbors to have their own individual plots. In 2009, we cleaned out the space and built beds for the community farm. In 2010, we built more beds and created a community garden, hoop house and a cob oven. In 2011 we finished building the last of our beds and will be completing building projects for an outdoor community kitchen, wash station, tool shed and much more!
