SWAG Project is an Urban Farm, Food Justice and Community Building project in the South Ward of Newark. We are dedicated to providing community food access and increasing educational and economic opportunities for local residents. We provide fresh and healthy foods to the local community of Newark’s South Ward and work to empower residents to take control of their local food system and health. Now in its 6th year, our home base has never been better!
The farm and community center is open to all local residents and visitors as a place to relax or volunteer. Participation in all our events is welcome and we invite all local residents and members of local schools and universities to get involved. We have regular volunteer and open gardening days, as well as harvest and shared community meals. Starting in fall the site will also offer community nutrition and cooking courses, as well as information on food justice and empowerment.
