Burning Kumquat Urban Farm in St. Louis

burning kumquat farmers

Founded by a group of students in the fall of 2007, the Burning Kumquat is a low-impact, intensive garden on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis. The Burning Kumquat is joining a number of urban and campus farms in raising consciousness of community, food, and environmental issues. During the summer, the farm sells at the North City Market in St. Louis and will sell on the Wash U campus during the school year

The Burning Kumquat farmers have been incredibly hospitable as HOMEGROWN invades their town. We learned about the band The Northwoods from Jen the farmer, and now they’re playing at our party! The Burning Kumquats will also be at the HOMEGROWN Urban Country Fair with vermicomposting games, water conservation relay races, a Homegrown Iron Chef competition and more. Promises to be a ridiculous amount of fun.
