Food for Thought Urban Farm
Wyoming Food for Thought Project is working to create a community where everyone has access to local, healthy food, and with the variety of different garden types we provide throughout Casper, this vision will someday become a reality. From our Food is Free gardens, to rentable plots, demonstration gardens, the high tunnel for year-round production, and more, our goal is to revive a sense of self-sustainability throughout the community, by educating on the benefits of buying and producing seasonally local and organic food.

2017 Urban Farm Impact
Wyoming Food for Thought Project made a huge impact on our community in 2017! Not only did we install a second high tunnel at our new Urban Farm location at the old Roosevelt High School, but we also broke ground on our children's sensory garden, and cooked meals with produce straight from our gardens with the local neighborhood kids after Summer Feeding. Below we have outlined additional impacts that Wyoming Food for Thought Project made in 2017.
We helped over 40 individuals and families grow their own food at our two community garden locations in 2017.
We installed our fifth community garden, and now tend over 150 raised beds that produce free fruits and vegetables for our community in 2017.
We installed three purchased raise beds for families wanting to grow their own food within our community in 2017.
There are so many amazing and supportive people and businesses throughout our community, and support us in a variety of ways! Our Garden Partners donate coffee grounds, mulch, kitchen scraps, spent grains and wood shavings that we use in our compost to grow our own soil, buy local by purchasing raised beds and rain barrels with us, volunteer in the gardens and much, much more!
