 About Madison FarmWorks, Troy Community Farm, and Community GroundWorks

Madison FarmWorks is an off-shoot business of Troy Community Farm.  Madison FarmWorks provides training, design, install, and maintenance services to urban vegetable gardeners as well as a small variety of hard-to-find organic gardening products.  Troy Community Farm grows certified organic produce on Madison’s Northside and is the city’s first urban farm, serving 190 CSA members, an on-site farm stand, and several grocery stores.  The focus for both of these businesses is high quality and volume organic vegetable production using hand-scale techniques and limited spaces.  Both businesses also train farmers and gardeners.

The farm is a program of the non-profit organization Community GroundWorks.  The mission of Community GroundWorks is to connect individuals with urban agricultural and natural lands within a diverse learning community.  We grow wholesome and organic food for local tables, steward urban natural areas, inspire healthful eating, and offer hands-on opportunities for learning.  By teaching what we practice, we provide the skills to build enduring communities.  On the ground, Community GroundWorks stewards the 26 acres of Troy Gardens including the 5-acre farm as well as 4 acres of community gardens, 4 acres of restored prairie, a kids’ garden, natural areas, and walking trails.  Community GroundWorks also runs the Goodman Youth Farm.
