ECO City Farms is an nonprofit organization focusing on community food issues in Prince George’s County and the greater Chesapeake foodshed. Our core operation is an urban farm in the working class town of Edmonston, Maryland. We demonstrate the community empowerment, economic development, job training and community health benefits of growing chemical-free food in urban/suburban environments, close to those who will eat it.
ECO City Farms’ focus is on the communities of the Prince George’s County (MD) Port Towns of Edmonston, Cottage City, Colmar Manor, Bladensburg and surrounding inner beltway areas communities with little to no access to healthy food. We seek to create community where residents have greater access to affordable, healthy foods and enhanced opportunities for active living.
