Essential Earth Urban Farm shows Stamford residents how to grow sustainable food in their homes
The founders of an urban farm in Stamford say you can grow healthy, sustainable food in densely populated areas - and it's looking to show residents how.
Essential Earth Urban Farm opened in March. Co-founder Casey Keefe says the microgreens and mushrooms grown are the perfect crop for a dense urban space where traditional farming can't work.
The farm is selling its organic superfoods to local restaurants and at farmer's markets. Keefe says her background is in education and the ultimate goal at Essential Earth is to start a revolution in urban farming and food security.
Essential Earth's mushrooms and microgreens are available at the Downtown Stamford Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Essential Earth also supplies fresh greens, mushrooms and herbs to the food pantry at Revival House Community Center - who the farm shares a building with.
