Through a NACD grant, Henricopolis SWCD has partnered with the Community Food Collaborative to create a farm-to-school urban agriculture program at Fairfield Middle School. The farm, Cornerstone Community Farm, is an economic and agricultural collaboration that supports neighborhood vitality through sustainable food production, job creation, and environmental stewardship. The farm is a living laboratory where education and entrepreneurial opportunity intersect to create proud young farmers, scholars and business leaders.

The site will combat two critical local challenges – food insecurity and stormwater runoff – in a setting that promotes education about both.
