Urban Agriculture in Kingston, NY

Urban Ag in Kingston

The South Pine Street City Farm is an urban farm located in the Hudson Valley’s Kingston, NY.  On a 1/4 acre lot, we grow produce destined for our city’s various tables.  We strive to provide absolutely delicious vegetables and fruits grown minutes from their destination using responsible and regenerative growing practices.  How can you enjoy our veggies for yourself?  Visit farm the stand, which is open three afternoons a week during the spring, summer and fall.

The YMCA Farm Project’s mission is to educate and empower young people by directly engaging them in sustainable food production on an urban farm.  These young people will learn and practice the skills needed to produce their own food and to make healthy choices throughout their lifetime, while increasing the community’s access to fresh produce.

The Dig Kids – an Urban Farming Program  is charged in working with Kingston youth to grow food, learn farming practices, encourage entrepreneurship, beautification, pride and good health through hands on farming experiences.

GrO +
The O+ Festival pulls off something that is very difficult to sustain. Bartering medical services for artwork and performance is not a simple exchange, but there is a simple reason why it has been working and expanding: gift (or Transition culture within a community sustains and grO+s that community, allowing it more opportunity to thrive. For this reason, it’s important that O+ partner with other similar local community endeavors. They can help support us and we can help support them.    With that in mind, O+ is happy to announce that it will be partnering with the Kingston YMCA Farm Project. This project’s mission is to “…educate and empower young people by directly engaging them in sustainable food production on an urban farm.” Not only will we be giving the Kingston YMCA Farm Project numerous shout-outs on our site, but they will be providing their South Pine Street City Farm location as a venue for a kid’s show in this year’s festival. Local O+ volunteers and participants will also be helping them out with all the work that needs to be done to help keep O+ and the farm grO+ing!
