Earthworks Urban Farm

In 1997, a Capuchin friar felt a calling to start an urban garden as a program of Detroit's Capuchin Soup Kitchen. That small plot of 2.5 acres grew into what is our organic urban farm project today, harvesting 6,000 pounds of produce for Detroit's hungry.

The Capuchin Soup Kitchen's Earthworks Urban Farm seeks to build a just food system through education, inspiration, and community development.  We seek to restore our connection to the environment and community.  It is a working study in social justice and in knowing the origin of the food we eat.
