490 Farmers

Our Mission


490 Farmers seeks to learn alongside Rochester residents and youth to build community, provide land access, and address food insecurity through urban agriculture. Guided by principles of mutual aid, we aim to steward a space where all feel welcome and integral to this mission, thereby pushing our city toward a more resilient and equitable future. 


The 490 Farm

Located at the corner of Broadway & Meigs St. across from the Baber AME Church (550 Meigs St., Rochester NY, 14607), we are the first community garden on state owned land in New York, and the second largest in the city of Rochester.
