  1. 1.  Local  Sustainable  Professional  Service Jamestown Urban Farmer is a proposed/planned urban farm that will be located on property that is located between Barrows and Allen Streets. It is intended to be a community based non-profit entity that will embody the principals of the local food movement. We support a 16 raised bed community garden at the corner of Chandler and Allen Streets, and we will start our official operation with the construction of a partially underground greenhouse that will be built on top of the old house foundation located at 225 Barrows Street. In future years it is our plan to keep expanding right down Allen Street all the way to Scioto Street. www.JamestownUrbanFarmer.com JamestownUrbanFarmer Office:301E.2ndStreet Suite#307 Jamestown,NY14701 Farm:225BarrowsStreet Jamestown,NY14701 Jamestown Urban Farmer “Always know where your food comes from!” www.JamestownUrbanFarmer.com .
  2. 2. What is urban agriculture? Urban Agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing, and distributing food in, or around, a village, town, or city. As the world’s population continues to increase, and as moreand morepeople live in urban areas, the demand for safely and quickly grown local food increases at a rate that the current farming model cannot and will not continue to sustain. What are the benefits of Urban Agriculture?  Increase food security  Growing food locally  Give under-served persons food access  Strengthen the local economy  Engage consumers locally  Reduce “food miles” and fossil fuel use  Reduce our overall carbon footprint  Create local sustainable jobs  Increased property values “It takes a lot of skill to be able to grow food sustainably. It’s an art form. We need to raise agriculture up to another different level like they do in Europe where farmers are on the same level as engineers and doctors…because the food that we eat is the most important thing in our lives.” - Will Allen (Growing Power-Milwaukee, WI) How will we do this?  Alternative growing methods  Hydroponics  Aquaponics  Micro-Orchards  Greenhouses  Community Shared Agriculture  Restaurant Shared Agriculture  Supporting the local Farmer’s Market  Nutrition, Gardening, Shopping Classes  Urban Agriculture Training Why get involved or volunteer?  Learn to grow your own food  Support network of like-minded persons  Build community and neighborhood  Be a part of something sustainable  Reduce your carbon footprint  Improve your home values  Improve your community Planned Core Products and Services:  Raised Bed Construction and Install  Organic Composting  Seed Share Program  Food Preservation  Urban Agriculture Training  Aquaponics Supported Greenhouses  Green Roofs  Alternative Energy  Deconstruction Services  Strategic Partnering and Alliances Who we would like to team up with:  Farmer’s Market  Community Members and Neighbors  Schools, Colleges, and Tradesmen  Juvenile Incarceration Facilities  Community Development Organizations  Neighborhood Groups  Chautauqua County  The Cities of Jamestown and Dunkirk, NY  Contractors, Arborists, Scientists, and Engineers, People What do we need?  Volunteers  Donated services from contractors  Material, supply, and equipment donations  Lumber, stone, brick, and fasteners  Tools-Garden & Construction  Money Donations Contact Us!
