Join us in planting trees at THEARC Farm!
THEARC Farm is the anchor site of the BBAR Farms network. The farm was built in 2010, when BBAR staff added 21 raised beds alongside Oxon Creek. The project farm was to encourage healthy nutrition in the community and utilize green space in a positive way. To learn more, read up on the THEARC Farm here.
