The Last Organic Outpost

Striving to create a sense of community, the Last Organic Outpost is an inner city urban farm project that uses regenerative agriculture to restore unused vacant lots. Beginning as an idea by Joe Nelson, six years and $17,000 later, the Outpost had expanded from a simple backyard garden to a teaching nonprofit on several adjacent abandoned lots that had been used for dumping. In 2009, Mayor Bill White asked the city to turn off another adjacent lot after seeing the success of a project that is striving to serve as an anchor for an urban farm belt across the city.
