Farm to Table

 Farm to Table

 BLOC’s Farm to Table Urban Garden is located at our Horses on the Hill (HOTH) campus. Our   mission is to improve Price Hills' access to locally grown, affordable produce. We believe that   good food is love, and we intend on loving our neighborhood by creating a sustainable source   of produce while providing hands-on experiential learning and environment activities with   nature, wildlife and some of our favorite "farm" animals in an effort to improve health,   academic and life outcomes to historically unserved communities.

 Farm to Table goals:

  • Reduce nutrient insecurity for low-income families by providing produce markets that are not only close to home, but allow families to buy the healthiest, freshest produce at 50% or more below retail value. 
  • Create a sustainable produce source 
  • Conserve natural resources, restore wildlife habitats, teach carbon neutrality, reduce waste going to landfills
  • Teach job skills/offer training in agriculture, nature, food and animals
