Urban Farm

 

This is a step in the right direction! We are committed to increase the access to healthy food in the North End. The Urban Farm will help keep our food dollars in the community.

Located on 6th and Bowman Street we will soon provide healthy food to our local businesses.

 

 

 

Our Partnerships

In partnership with The Gorman-Rupp Company, The Ohio State Mansfield and The Richland Gro-Op Cooperative, the grand opening will be on Friday September 6th, 2019 from 5pm-6pm.

As the Urban Farm project started to gain momentum and enthusiasm started to build, everyone felt like they were on the verge of something special. Cindy Wood of the Ohio State Mansfield captures that feeling of serendipitous timing: “It really was a perfect win-win of industry, neighborhood development, and community dialogue, alongside the resources of a research institution like The Ohio State Mansfield that made this happen.”

Scott King, Gorman-Rupp’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, is similarly excited about his company’s involvement: “The Gorman-Rupp Company is very pleased to partner with The Ohio State Mansfield and NECIC on an innovative urban farming project that fosters productive use of the land that our former manufacturing facility occupied at 6th and Bowman streets and provides a foundation for additional investment and economic development to occur on Mansfield’s North End.”
