Who We Are

 What began in 2017 as a backyard garden to share with our household and kids next door has grown  into a quarter acre urban farm just east of downtown Erie, sprawling onto the two adjacent side lots. The farm exists in relationship with like-minded food, farm, and community projects in Erie working together to create a sustainable, just local food system built on food sovereignty and reverence for life. The farm's mission is to cultivate plants for food and beauty through ecological practices that are sustained by reciprocal relationships with our community. Learn more about the farm here.

What We Grow

The urban farm includes a backyard garden, propagation greenhouse, production field for vegetables and cut flowers, tiny orchard with fruit trees and berries, native plants, mushrooms, and demonstration areas for backyard gardening, composting, and culinary arts. Each spring, we produce seedlings for sale (veggie and flower starts, perennial native plants, and herbs) and food crops for the Little Italy Farmers Market and East Side Pay-What-You-Can farm stands. We also offer a small seasonal flower subscription (a flower CSA), handmade winter wreaths, and floral design services for weddings and special celebrations. Some of our most popular crops include greens (collards, kale, chard), garlic, edible flowers, aronia berries, elderberries, hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, beans, peas, rhubarb, and okra.

Plant Sale FAQ

What plants do you have? A variety of veggies, herbs, flowers, and native plants. (We will not have peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, squash, or basil potted up for the May 11th sale). Consider getting cold hardy plants (lettuce, broccoli, cilantro, peas, onions, kale) earlier in May and waiting till late May before planting heat-loving crops like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and squash. **Please sign up for our newsletter and check social media for an up-to-date plant list of what we have available**

How does Pay What You Can pricing work?

It's pretty straightforward. Pay What You Can! We'll have a list of suggested prices on a sliding scale from $3-5 per plant, you choose what you'd like to pay. We do not want the cost to be a barrier to growing your own food.

What forms of payment do you take? Cash, check, and Venmo. (Also, barter or trade if you're into that.) Unfortunately we can't take credit card or Apple/Google Pay.

Parade St Pay What You Can Farmstand. Local and seasonal food grown by farmers and gardeners to share with the community.
