Front Step Farm

Last winter, ’09 City Farm Apprentice Than Wood finished up the growing season with Rich Pederson and took time figuring out a life’s direction – and with incredible results. Choosing to invest in the west side’s land and community, Than negotiated with a lot owner on Westminster to start his own version of City Farm: Front Step Farm.

Front Step Farm works in conjunction with Than’s compost pick up service (Farm-in-a-Cart: to learn more, contact farminacart@riseup.net), utilizing the City Farm method of fixing soil by growing its own (compost!). Now part of the Little City Growers Co-op, Than sells his produce – …chard, boc choi, dragon tongue beans, basil… – at Thursday’s Parade Street market.

His accomplishments (and fellow City Farm volunteer, Noah Read) were also recently featured in the Projo.

Conrgatulations Than! Keep it up. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Than and all the Little City Growers (which includes City Farm) from 3-7pm on Parade Street, in the Armory Park.
