We the People Opportunity Farm

WTPOF provides paid internships and reintegration support for men and women returning home from incarceration. Interns are trained at our urban farm in a variety of operational tasks such as no-till preparation, planting, cultivating healthy soil, harvesting, delivery to local restaurants, and the free distribution of produce to the neighborhood where the farm resides. Our program includes an educational curriculum related to growing food and the holistic benefits to humans and the planet. Our program goals are to reduce recidivism, increase community connections, and support the holistic well-being of the intern cohorts by “changing the soil” in their lives.
