The Maple Avenue Market Farm, located in Northern Fairfax County, is the first...and currently the only local farm working directly with Arlington County Public Schools to grow fresh local produce for its students. We have also partnered with Discovery Woods Learning Community to grow and source ingredients for its students. In addition, the farm's produce is sold at the Maple Avenue Market, a local foods store in downtown Vienna, VA owned by farmers Chris and Sara Guerre, and at area farmers' markets. Chris and Sara are passionate about using organic growing methods on the farm; and passionate about hands-on agricultural and social innovation.
The farm is not open to the public, but more information about the farm, the Maple Avenue Market, and the Guerre's farm-to-school efforts can be obtained by stopping by the Maple Avenue Market, 128 Maple Avenue, E., Vienna, VA or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need volunteers in all areas: farmhands, administrative volunteers, nonprofit professionals, big thinkers...and doers, connections to Fairfax County Schools, and general supporters are all welcome to learn more and help us do what many say can't be done!
We've got small projects lined up now...and big plans for the near future!
