Our Mission

To build a beloved Agriculture Park, creating a healthier, more vibrant community.


Vision + Goals


We envision a public park that brings together the many strengths of our community; its people, its organizations, its farmers, and the natural capital of the Show-Me State. Together we can create an agriculture park to transform how we grow, eat and share food; now and for generations to come.


By building this Agriculture Park the space will host on-site activities that meet the following goals:

  • The park will make healthy, local foods easier to access for all Columbians.
  • The park will help Columbians eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • The park will be a space where Columbians can spend more time outside, engaging in physical activity and spending time with other members of the community.



Planning for this exciting project has been under way for over two years.

This project's fundraising already has good forward momentum.

Continued support from the community will ensure the project will break ground in late 2017.
