Our 3.5-acre farm is located next to our food shelf right here in Bemidji. Started in 2017 in an industrial site, we now grow thousands of pounds of fresh produce that are distributed in our food shelf.
We do have opportunities to volunteer on the farm at different times of the year. Check here to see what needed currently.
Thanks to the Coast of Maine's #growinggoodprogram and Hill's County Green House for their donation of soil mix for our green house.
DEEP WINTER GREENHOUSE
The Bemidji Community Food Shelf is one of five sites in Minnesota to construct a Deep Winter Greenhouse (DWG) in partnership with the University of Minnesota. This exciting and innovative structure is a prototype designed by the Center for Sustainable Building Research and will allow the Farm to grow greens and vegetables for food shelf families all year round!
The DWG will demonstrate sustainable, local food production in our area and be a great learning resource for our community. Construction was completed in Fall 2017.
This project is in partnership with the U-MN Extension and supported by grants from the Bernick’s Family Foundation and Beltrami Electric’s Round-Up Program.
