Alleycat Acres reconnects people, place, and produce by transforming underutilized urban spaces into neighborhood run farms. Food is more than what we eat; it’s a medium through which we can forge intimate, meaningful relationships. Our farms provide platforms for diverse communities to converge and build strong relationships with a coalition of people and partner organizations who are committed to social and environmental change.
We strive to find innovative ways to put culture back into agriculture. Our current projects include transforming an undeveloped street into a community garden, installing an edible walking trail on City Light’s Duwamish Valley transmission corridor, and a series of “farmlets” in parking strips across the Central District. Each farm site hosts events and work parties throughout the year tailored to suit its neighborhood.
We host weekly volunteer events at each of our farm sites, plus monthly opportunities at our native restoration project. We are also happy to arrange internship opportunities.
