Our Mission and Values


The Farm Alliance of Baltimore is a membership organization of urban farms, neighborhood growers, and friends. We use connection, resource sharing, and collective advocacy with respect to food, land and water to expand communities’ self-determination and power.


Sustainable Agriculture
Through farming practices that enhance environmental and workplace quality for our farmers and our communities, we hope to create and maintain a healthy food system for all. 

Recognizing that we are part of the City of Baltimore, we hope to engage in community by connecting our partners and community members in order to foster a healthy and reliable support network.   

Collective Power
As a membership based organization, strength in numbers is the foundation of our ability to leverage the voices of our farmers and their communities to change the structural inequities of our food system.  

Being a membership-led organization allows us ensure that our shared power and resources are used to promote fair and just programing and action that builds community and food sovereignty in our communities.

By facilitating the ongoing exchange of knowledge through experiential learning and critical dialogue we aim to create a more informed consumer and producer base that applies their knowledge to the changing food landscape of Baltimore.
