About the Urban Farm

The Urban Farm at God's Storehouse is a community farming space that works to increase the access of healthy and fresh food to area residents. We grow a variety of fruits and vegetables throughout the year that is donated directly to God's Storehouse for distribution. Food harvested at the Urban Farm acts as a healthy, locally grown addition to every customer’s basket. The once empty lot now holds raised garden beds, a greenhouse, a fully stocked tool shed, and a composting facility. We strive to create a stronger and more equitable food system in our community through: educational workshops, volunteer opportunities, and community events. 

Meet Our Urban Farm Manager

Stephanie Adkins is the Urban Farm Manager at God's Storehouse. Stephanie is passionate about reaching out to the community and teaching young people how to live off the land. She grew up on a farm and strives to “leave the earth better than we found it.” Stephanie loves working at God’s Storehouse because she is able to carry on the tradition of farming and teach the next generation the importance of taking care of the land around them. She is dedicated to bringing groups of local youth to the farm for educational purposes and hands-on activities.
