Student-led Summer Farm Stands continue through August

The Summer Farms Stands will continue at five locations across the city through the end of August. See locations and dates below.

All produce grown at Drew Farm follows DPSCD organic growing practices. Water and soil has been tested and cleared for safe growing. All produce sold will be labeled as unwashed in accordance with food safety regulations. All markets will accept cash, credit, debit and EBT/Bridge cards.

DPSCD high school students trained through the DSGC’s farm stand curriculum will assist in operating the markets. Thanks to our partnership with Drew Transition Center, these high school students will also be working collaboratively on a regular basis with our district’s exceptional students with special needs.
