Urban farms have increasingly proved to be an effective tool to teach children and parents about healthy eating and physical activity. Greensgrow Farm in Philadelphia uses an abandoned site as an urban farm to teach the community how to grow food. Hayes Valley Farm in San Francisco hosts weekly community activities to educate and involve local residents in agricultural practices. In the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale, an 11-acre (4.5-ha) farm at a middle school, provides a "living campus" where students get hands-on agriculture experiences that cultivate both healthy habits and environmental leadership.
