Our company is a family business created in 2011.
The Central West End Farm’s mission is to eliminate hunger within our community by growing, harvesting and delivering organic vegetables and fruits to clients at local food pantries. — Arthur and Nancy Culbert
Our vision is to plant the seeds that inspire others to grow Gift Gardens- in this country and all around the world. Each Gift Garden that sprouts is cultivated with a similar purpose: to fill a vital need for those around us.

Walking to work one morning, Arthur got an idea as he passed the empty lot located at 5057 Waterman Boulevard—what a great place for a community garden. The lot had been vacant for almost 15 years, ever since the apartment buildings located on the property were destroyed by fire.
When approached, the owner of the land gave permission to use this beautiful vacant lot to build a community garden; we in turn promised not to open a car wash using the water the owner so generously provided. A partnership was formed that day with the property’s owner, built on trust to maintain the land with the highest respect at all times. Unique to our urban community farm is our Gift Garden that gifts all the vegetables and fruits to food pantries—not even tastes for those who work and volunteer.
