Doing Good - The Farm

The Farm is an initiative of the Cobblestone Project, a local nonprofit, that is doing its part in helping to provide locally grown fruits and veggies to people in need in our community.
Just off 540 and a few miles down Wedington, there is a place that may surprise you.

A full-fledged farm started by a small group of community-minded residents.

Jennifer Watts, the Executive Director of the Cobblestone Project said, "Felt like it was their duty a to create a community without a need in."

"The Farm" is one of a few initiatives by the Cobblestone Project.

It was founded a few years back with a mission of helping others.

Watts explained "Giving back to our neighbors and making sure we can support them in any way that we can."

"We're really going for stuff that is biggest nutrition and people like to eat and we can deliver most effectively," said Jake Melton, the farm's manager.

The farm has dozens of rows of vegetable and fruits to help feed those in need in our community.

"We produce crops that we serve with the community through soup kitchens and community meals and homeless shelters," said Watts.

Melton said, "A to z. we do tomatoes squash and cucumbers. potatoes. we do all kinds of stuff."

In an effort to maintain the farm and even expand in the future, members with the Cobblestone Project say they could always use a little extra help to lend a hand to others.

"It takes a lot of hands and so we rely on the community.

I'm here all the time and would love people to come out," said Melton.

Watts said, "It's just really makes me grateful for what I have and what I can give back."
