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 Farm works in conjunction with ReVision Family Home – a shelter for homeless parents and their children located in the Franklin Field neighborhood of Dorchester. Our urban farm is an innovative agriculture project aiming to increase access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food for shelter residents and community members through our community-supported farm and greenhouse.
The ReVision Urban Farm has three main goals shaping our work and directing development of the urban farm. These goals are woven into the fabric of the farm and the programs we operate.
• Small-scale, green, economic development
• Community food security
• Job training and education
