Queen City Acres is a collection of backyards around Burlington that are repurposed into commercially-viable urban farms. They grow vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and flowers in Burlington’s Old and New North End Neighborhoods.
They believe strongly that growing food in urban environments is a crucial component in any local food economy. By leveraging underutilized spaces for production they increase the productivity of the land, grow food in close proximity to the people who consume it, and bolster the local food economy. They implement farming methods that are linked directly to increases in soil health resulting in more carbon sequestration and reductions in nutrient leaching. They are not certified organic by the USDA, but they do our absolute best to adhere to and exceed the standards put forth by the organic community. Their amendment process relies heavily high quality compost, which they source from local vendors, and they do not spray. Pest and disease issues are addressed by focusing first and foremost on soil health, crop rotation, and crop diversity.

Pea shoots keep best in their container, but we recommend "fluffing" them: open the container, pull the shoots out to release any built-up ethylene, then return to the container. This will slow the rate of spoiling. Eat within 5 days.
