Our Mission

Smiling Hogshead Ranch is an urban farm collective whose mission is to create a culture that empowers and connects our communities through ecology, education and collaboration.

Program Overview

We build

...sustainable infrastructure using recycled and reclaimed materials. 

We educate

...through member-driven workdays and classes to share our environmental knowledge.

We organize

...events to bring together environmentally active citizens and community-based organizations.

We grow

...food and lots of it! Our garden is overflowing with delicious, natural, organic grub for our members.

We compost

...six different ways! Residential food scraps and yard clippings return to the soil via 3 bin, microorganisms, and even worms.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us
are small matters compared to what lies within us.
And when we bring what is within us out into
the world, miracles happen."
