Recirculating Farms Coalition Newsroom - Profile and News Archive

The New Orleans-based Recirculating Farms Coalition is a collaborative group of farmers, educators, non-profit organizations and others committed to building local sources of healthy, accessible food. Through research, training and advocacy, we work to support development of innovative, eco-efficient farms. These recirculating farms can create stable green jobs and supply sustainably-grown food - fruits, vegetables, herbs and humanely-raised seafood - in diverse communities. RFC also offers community programming including farming, exercise, and cooking classes; workshops; and a weekly garden basket.
