ALMA Backyard Farms

Founded in 2013 and grounded in principles of restorative justice, ALMA Backyard Farms (ALMA) exists to combat food insecurity, create farm education for youth, and connect formerly incarcerated people to community. ALMA was started in order to re-claim lives of formerly incarcerated persons, re-purpose underutilized urban land into productive farms, and re-imagine community as a place for food sovereignty. ALMA accomplishes its mission through urban agriculture-based education programs.
