Urban Farmers Celebrate Harvest with the Community
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture held its second annual Harvest Hootenanny to advocate the harvest in the city.
Visitors to the Urban Farm were able to enjoy the taste of something produced locally.
Adam Saunders, the board president of CCUA, said many people support the farm because it is close to the neighborhood.
"Being in the city provides us benefits for being highly accessible for people to come in to learn and see the farm," Saunders said. "With the small space, we manage very intensively, so we could get a lot of production from the small area."
Saunders also said eating fresh on the farm allows people to enjoy higher quality food.
The core mission of CCUA is education. The organization is running volunteer programs and offering internship opportunities for college students.
