Anderson Urban Farm
The mini grant recipient, Anderson Urban Farm, were awarded $500 to help purchase native trees and shrubs for the barrier area. The mini grant allows Anderson Urban Farm to complete the removal of invasive species and complete the reforestation project which lies on a property barrier that slopes down toward Bartels Road, and also slopes toward the Community Garden area of the Anderson Urban Farm.
The newly formed Anderson Urban Farm is a unique work in progress, a beautiful canvas on which to create a space that benefits both the community and wildlife. One of the few remaining farm acreages in our suburban area, it has huge potential for restoration and education. In just over a year these mini grant recipients have reclaimed several acres of old farmstead from invasive plants and installed a community garden. Now the focus has shifted to the border areas of woodland that are still overrun with honeysuckle and euonymus. Anderson Urban Farms are able to plant this area with native trees and understory shrubs to benefit the birds and insects of the Ohio region.
