ABOUT THE NAC
The New Agrarian Center is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization that helps to build healthy, sustainable & equitable communities and local food systems. We do this through two key programs:

CITY FRESH
City Fresh provides naturally grown, local produce at weekly Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fresh Stops in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties. City Fresh meets the needs of both urban and rural communities by improving access to fresh, locally grown food for urban residents and increasing marketing opportunities in the city for local farmers. Shares have two prices to accommodate low-income shareholders.

The GEORGE JONES FARM
The GJ Farm is a 70 acre research farm and nature preserve inpsired by permaculture. Using techniques that build agricultural systems with as much complexity and diversity as natural ecosystems, the George Jones Farm is a rich complex of market gardens, learning spaces, naturally designed buildings, and restored wetland, prairie, and woodland habitats. The goal is to train the next generation of farmers while inspiring an ethic of earth care.

Our vision is to build a vibrant network that links the local foods movement with social justice, economic development, and environmental stewardship.
