Coming soon in the summer of 2019!

West Compton

In 2017, Alma Backyard Farms installed its largest urban farm on the property of a church and school.  This space is 1/4 of an acre and has allowed for a three-fold increase in Alma’s capacity to grow food and impact community.  Today, the urban farm in Compton acts as Alma’s hub for its programs.  With a larger urban farm site, Alma Backyard Farms is now poised to grow more food and create more opportunities for formerly incarcerated people, at-risk children and youth, and food insecure families. 

The urban farm in Compton includes 8000 square feet of edible landscape with 36 raised beds, 12 fruit trees, and a 4000 square foot pollinator garden.  In the near future, there will be a farm stand where produce will be shared with the community.

South Los Angeles

In 2015, Alma installed an urban farm at a transitional home providing an opportunity for over 60 formerly incarcerated persons to experience re-entry as a means to “give back” and restore their personal sense of agency.  Alma Backyard Farms transformed a space known to community members as “a dope house” into a productive space that grows food and grows community.  

 

The urban farm in South Los Angeles includes 2000 square feet of edible landscape with 12 raised beds, 24 fruit trees, 1 chicken coop and a 1000 square foot pollinator garden.

East Los Angeles

In 2013, Alma installed an urban farm that provided food to 5 families of formerly incarcerated parents and their children as part of an effort to reunify them.  Today, the food grown in this farm continues to benefit all of Alma’s constituents.

The urban farm in East Los Angeles includes 750 square feet of edible landscape with 8 raised beds, 8 fruit trees, and a 450 square foot pollinator garden.
