2-acre farm growing produce using organic methods that is distributed to the less fortunate through the Jewish Family Service Food Pantry.
Aaron Ney, Executive Director of Ekar Farm
Ekar is a non-profit communal urban farm on 2 acres in Denver Colorado, inspired by Jewish values and dedicated to building community through environmental and experiential education, growing sustainably produced vegetables and increasing access to wholesome food for those in need.
Ekar works to transform food consumers into food producers and providers; thereby reducing food miles, affecting low-wage labor practices, and improving our environment.
The impact of Ekar’s work is wide. From the nearly 1,500 volunteers getting dirty by taking part in planting, tending and harvesting in our fields to the 2,000 recipients of our 5,000 pounds donated to and distributed by Jewish Family Service Weinburg Food Pantry, Ekar is playing a pivotal role in demonstrating a new model for urban sustainability and community engagement in combating food insecurity and inequality.
Ekar is a wonderful place for families to share old wisdom with the next generation.
