The Library Farm is an organic, educational, community garden located on the grounds of the Northern Onondaga Public Library in Cicero, NY. Its operation is overseen by the NOPL’s Cicero Branch Manager, the NOPL Library Farm Manager and the Library Farm Steering Committee, which is made up of Library Farm gardeners. The mission of the Library Farm is to provide a place for the community to grow, share and learn about food literacy and organic, sustainable gardening.
At the Library Farm, half of the area is dedicated to a Food Pantry/Educational Garden; the other half is dedicated to our individual gardeners. Anyone can “check out” a raised bed to use for one growing season. We host approximately 35 to 40 Individual gardeners each year. All gardeners agree to follow organic, sustainable growing practices.
