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.
