The Huss Project Urban Farm started with a gathering of friends behind Huss digging into the dirt and creating the Triple Ripple Community Gardens in 2010. The farm has only grown since then, now cultivating 4 large beds of organic vegetables with our neighbors.
In 2015, we transitioned from a community garden model to an urban farm—with the mission of efficiently and sustainably providing good food for neighbors in need. With the support of community volunteers, the hardworking Huss staff, and the various service groups that come to the farm, we cultivate one of the Huss Project’s four acres, sharing skills with each other on how best to cultivate tomatoes or how to manage pests using organic methods.
The produce grown here gets distributed around Three Rivers through agencies like United Community Assistance Program, Domestic and Sexual Abuse Shelter (DASAS), Keystone Place, and the Community Kitchen at Trinity Episcopal Church. We also sell our produce along with the produce from partner farms—Corey Lake Orchards, Bair Lane Farm, White Yarrow Farm, Sustainable Greens, and Butternut Sustainable Farm—at the Three Rivers Farmers Market which financially sustains the good work happening on the farm.
If you would like to get involved on the farm, check out our Events page for our community gardening days or fill out our volunteer interest form, or contact us directly with any specific questions you have. If you or someone you know is in need of fresh produce, please let us know how we can help or how we can connect you with an organization that can.
