Program Update: Sprout Urban Farms

Jeremy AndrewsToday, Jeremy Andrews provided a fun-loving discussion about Sprout Urban Farms and its “Sprout Box.” Founded in 2009, Sprout Urban Farms has grown substantially and nearly 50% of their budget is covered by innovative revenue streams. The Sprout Box is one such initiative.

The Sprout Box is a highly customizable box of produce and local products from local farms and producers delivered to your home, or picked up at any of our available pick-up locations. The weekly Sprout Box is available in three sizes: $15, $25 or $100. They contain organic produce harvested just days prior to delivery. You select what produce and products on a weekly basis. Recipes for the boxes are available online.

Sprout Urban Farms also works with local schools engaging students in learning about food sources and eating healthy. They have spearheaded such efforts at school gardens, school markets, fresh produce for school cafeterias and student visits to local farms.
