Ad Astra Farms

Fall 2023

The Farm

Ad Astra Farms is an urban microfarm whose mission is to support the local food system in Prince George's and Charles Counties with sustainably grown produce, home garden consultation and education.

The Project Funded

Our project is two fold: first, to scale up from our current one-third acre plot to nearly 3 acres, and to obtain equipment for that transition. Second, we are working to use equipment purchased to establish a small tool library for true beginning farmers to needed rent equipment on a sliding scale.
