GRANTEE STORY

Partridge Creek Farm

Food as a path to a thriving civic life

Partridge Creek Farm (PCF) focuses on building civic agriculture in Ishpeming, located in the upper peninsula of Michigan. PCF believes that the relationship between generations, the soil, and the future is integral to building thriving civic life.

PCF works to reduce food insecurity by supporting food-based economic development, and educating the next generation on sustainable food systems through hands-on farming. The Civic Hub grant will help build out community farm technological capacity, which will then provide insights to other community farms that want to do the same. The work of this group extends well beyond agriculture, and shows the long-term value of cross-generational learnings and collective action.
