Our story is a simple one. One woman, one idea, one plot of land.
Since 1990, when a small plot
was reclaimed in the heart of the city, reVision
House has given shelter and hope to pregnant and parenting homeless
women – its Urban Farm
growing an appreciation of the land and the bounty it can offer.
It is a happy story of all
things possible when lives are given the proper environment, sunlight, and
time to grow.
The reVision Urban Agriculture Project works
in conjunction with reVision House, a shelter for homeless young women
and their children located in the Franklin Field neighborhood of Dorchester.
The urban farm is an innovative agriculture and aquaculture project
aiming to increase access to affordable, nutritious, culturally appropriate
food for shelter residents and community members through our
community-supported farm and greenhouses.
The reVision Urban Agriculture Project has
three main objectives shaping our work and directing development of the
urban farm: small-scale, green, economic development; community food
security; and job training and education. These goals are woven into the
fabric of the farm and the programs we operate.
