A Brief History of Filomena Farm

The story of Prozia Filomena is cloaked in mystery but we know she lived in a time when urban enclaves of immigrant groups throughout the U.S. cultivated every available patch of land in some way. Some ancestral threads have been broken and stories lost, but the urban nano-farming effort persists in pockets and small plots like this one.

This site intends to document a variety of endeavors with the hope that examples of attempts, failures, and successes at urban sustainability and every-day design inspire similar efforts.
