Jones Valley Urban Farm just harvested its biggest cash crop ever.
The Birmingham City Council this week approved $805,000 in funding for Jones Valley Teaching Farm, which runs a downtown farm and six more on Birmingham City Schools campuses.
The Farm in the past has received $50,000 in annual support from the city, said Amanda Storey, executive director of Jones Valley Farm.
The funding comes from the city’s American Rescue Act Funding.
