Is City Green produce organic?
Yes, all of the food we grow is organic!
City Green’s urban farms are the heart of the organization and consist of two separate food production farms: the City Green Farm Eco-Center in Clifton, and the Learning Garden in Eastside Park in Paterson. City Green grows over 75 varieties of vegetables and herbs that are not only culturally appropriate for the communities they serve, but healthy, local, and delicious as well.
Each farm adheres to organic growing practices to ensure healthy soil, healthy farm workers, and a healthy habitat for wildlife. Farming methods include crop rotation, cover cropping, natural pest management, hand weeding, and planting disease-resistant crop varieties.
What is a Veggie Mobile?
The Veggie Mobile is a custom-designed refrigerated box truck and mobile market that effectively transports City Green produce across New Jersey to a variety of different locations. The Veggie Mobile provides increased access to fresh, local produce for residents who are unable to conveniently obtain healthy foods and do not have transportation to visit City Green’s farm stands.
