Food System Lab @ Cylburn
The Food System Lab @ Cylburn is an urban teaching farm in Baltimore City, operated on the grounds of the Cylburn Arboretum by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF). Our project emphasizes the important connections among the living components of a small-scale agro-ecosystem and offers a compelling introduction to an equitable, healthy and sustainable food system. Visitors engage directly with a variety of food production practices, including aquaponics, a system of agriculture that combines fish farming with hydroponic plant farming.
The Food System Lab is currently CLOSED for a project redesign.
Make plans to visit us in Spring, 2020.
Follow us on Facebook for greenhouse updates, photos, upcoming events and open hours.
