White Harvest Farms
Education, Outreach And Sustainability Framework
THROUGH PUBLIC/PRIVATE PartnershipS
The Clara White Mission established White Harvest Farms in 2012 at 4850 Moncrief Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32209, the heart of Historic Moncrief Springs.
The Mission purchased 3 blighted parcels adjacent to the property. Currently, the mission’s property consists of a total of 10.5 acres. Our goal is to target food desert residents, low-income, homeless veterans and disadvantaged who lack education and skills for employment.
This property was an ash site, until it was cleaned -up by the City of Jacksonville. The property was remediated and new soil was brought to the site to accommodate the new initiative of the mission’s urban farm, “White Harvest Farms”.
