E.A.T. South is an urban teaching farm that engages their local community by gathering around, learning about and growing food. We empower people to change the way food travels from the ground to our plates.
We envision a food system where people can access fresh food from farmers, grow and prepare their own food, and are healthy as a result. We believe that a thriving local food system includes: healthy soil, air and water, profitable farms and other food-related businesses, access to seasonal produce, access to information about growing and preparing your own food, a healthier community, access to land, capital and resources by people previously excluded from food and farming systems.
