For the past decade, the Oakland Avenue Urban Farm has served as a community anchor.  It is now poised to double its footprint through arts-centered redevelopment.  The Farm is building a network of artists, designers, engineers, legal and business professions, planners, and residents to explore ways to reactivate existing architectures with inspired, locally rooted programming and to create beautiful and functional infrastructure that will move the site off-grid by building sustainable energy systems.
