Jones Valley Urban Farm

Whole Foods Market is proud to support the important work of Jones Valley Urban Farm in downtown Birmingham.  Though we are currently unable to carry any products from Jones Valley Farm in our stores due to the high neighborhood demand for the garden’s modest output, we support in other ways.  We regularly contribute food and drink to fundraising events and dinners and make our store available as a venue for educating our customers about the JVUF mission.  Recently, we have partnered with the Southern Foodways Alliance to fund a film that tells the Jones Valley Urban Farm story. Check out our South region's local grower and vendor profiles. Thanks for watching our slide show and please let us know what you think!

THANK YOU, Whole Foods, for embracing our friends at Jones Valley Urban Farm. The YMCA Youth Center (just down the street) is also a proud partner with this dynamic organization. The kids in our care will benefit through the programming you support at Jones Valley Urban Farm; a positive "ripple effect" is alive and well in downtown Birmingham!
