What is the Cannery Urban Farm?

The Cannery Urban Farm is operated by the Center for Land-Based Learning, and serves as a training ground for beginning farmers while supplying the community with fresh seasonal produce. This site demonstrates the viability of a relationship between urban uses and agriculture, and creates a sense of connection with the City’s rural heritage and surroundings and serves as a resource for the community.

A Training Ground for Beginning Farmers

This 5-acre site is designated for commercial farming operations and serves as a California Farm Academy Farm Business Incubator site for beginning farmers; specifically graduates of the Beginning Farmer Training program. Plots of land, as well as greenhouse and cooler space, can be leased on an annual basis for up to four years, helping new farmers break down some of the biggest barriers to getting started farming—access to land and infrastructure.
