ReVision Urban Farm began as a small garden in 1990 alongside a shelter for homeless mothers that is now the ReVision Family Home. Originally called ReVision House, the program began as a very small grassroots effort to positively impact the lives of young homeless mothers and their children. With the purchase of three abandoned lots across the street, a plot of land was reclaimed in the heart of Boston to become the ReVision Urban farm that is in operation today. When I visited the farm with fellow Food Warrior Rebecca Bilodeau, we were able to see one of the new plots of land where volunteers and farm staff were constructing raised beds and hard at work.
Let’s take a look!

This post is from one of the interns in the Real Time Farms Food Warrior Internship Program. These interns are collecting data, pictures, and video on the growing practices of our nation’s farms, gathering food artisans’ stories, and documenting farmers markets. We all deserve to know where our food comes from! Boring legalese we feel we must include: this was written by a real live person who has their own opinions, which we value, but that do not necessary reflect, though they may (or may not), reflect the values and opinions of Real Time Farms. That is for you to guess and us to know.
