an excerpt from Lewiston/Auburn Magazine latest issue. This is a great time to be and urban farmer in Auburn.
Currently, the LA community is experiencing a surge in urban farming, similar to the movements happening around the country as depicted in ''Growing Cities'', a documentary film to be released later this year that examines the role of urban farming in America and pursues the power it can have to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. We have the opportunity to join this movement and bring our food back into our control.

The LA community is strategically positioned to connect leaders in the local food and farming movement to create a sustainable urban food hub in the downtown. The immigrant population that has established their farming practice locally, along with Good Food for Lewiston-Auburn, St. Mary's Nutrition Center, Lots to Gardens, local farmers markets, and others have been building the local food and agricultural economy for over a decade. The groundwork is in place for a sustainable indoor farming model that would provide an urban food center and result in food security and greater local economic benefit. Many people across the two cities want cost effective, healthy, local food available. This model provides a bridge to connect food, culture, economy and sustainability in a holistic reuse of an existing structure. Bates Mill 5 and advances in technology bring this exciting potential to life.
