Reno Food Systems

Reno Food Systems has partnered with Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space to operate a 5 acre vegetable farm at the northeast corner of the park along Mayberry Drive, just east of the historic ranch house property. This teaching campus will offer our farm interns hands-on experience growing high-density, organic crops in Northern Nevada’s arid climate. We call this project a “park farm” because we envision many more urban micro-farms popping up in under-utilized public spaces in Reno and Sparks.
