Our aim is to help grow a more dynamic and resilient town through food, art, and fun. We are part urban farm, part experimental kitchen workshop, part arts and events venue, part banquet hall, part open-source community space. Yes, those are a lot of things for one business to be. We want to nourish Stuart with excellent food, practical and interesting know-how, and enriching cultural and artistic experiences. We want Ground Floor Farm to be as varied, vibrant, and expansive as our beautiful home town. So come; eat, learn, and enjoy. Make this space your own.
We grow vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers for sale directly to our community. We prioritize heirloom, native, and ecologically appropriate varieties of crops. We grow both intensively in the soil and in hydroponic systems to maximize production on our small farm. We use only materials approved for organic agriculture to fight pests and diseases. We never use synthetic chemical pesticides.
We facilitate a range of public programming to serve the diverse needs of our local community, from family festivals to night markets to art events. We also create a variety of educational programming for both adults and children, building confidence and getting folks active in the kitchen and garden.
With our downtown location, unique urban farm setting, and ample parking, our facilities are ideal for a variety of rental events. We welcome private events, such as business meetings, parties, and weddings. Additionally, we offer space for groups and individuals to host activities open to the public, such as art exhibits, performances, yoga classes, and film nights.
We want Ground Floor Farm to be a part of a hometown renaissance, in which individuals focus their energy and creativity on the places they come from and through which the importance of a vibrant community center is reclaimed and revitalized.
Grow and produce delicious food and give others the tools and resources to do so themselves.
