Welcome to Black Thumb Farm!

Our mission is to educate young people on sustainable farming methods that will aid them in the fight against food injustice in their communities as well as provide them with a trade that they can utilize throughout their lives. We aim to give children and young people of color, particularly BIPOC, access to a safe, green space where they can explore their own passions and connection to the land. 


Everyone deserves access to healthy, fresh foods. That is the foundation of Black Thumb Farm. We teach and train young people the art and skill of farming and growing their own food. More than that, we also offer workshops and classes that teach valuable life skills like budgeting, resume building, access to higher education, and more. We hope to send our youth into the world feeling confident, secure, and ready for whatever is to come, and we believe it all starts in the soil.
