Food System Lab @ Cylburn

The Food System Lab @ Cylburn is an urban teaching farm in Baltimore City, operated on the grounds of the Cylburn Arboretum by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF). Our  project emphasizes the important connections among the living components of a small-scale agro-ecosystem and offers a compelling introduction to an equitable, healthy and sustainable food system. Visitors engage directly with a variety of food production practices, including aquaponics, a system of agriculture that combines fish farming with hydroponic plant farming.

Visit Us: The Food System Lab is free and open to individual drop-in visitors for information and tours during the following times:

  • Wednesdays, 10am – noon
  • Sundays, 1pm – 3pm

Please note: The Food System Lab is closed on major holidays.

We are not currently scheduling group tours. 

Follow us on Facebook for greenhouse updates, photos, upcoming events and open hours.
