Save Nick's Organic Farm

About Us

The Executive of Montgomery County, Maryland is proposing to replace a 31-year-old organic farm, operating on public land, allowing a private soccer organization to build non-public fields in Potomac, MD.

The community is in an uproar—Nick’s Organic Farm is Montgomery County’s only organic seed farm (one of a few in the entire Chesapeake region). It’s also strategically isolated and protected from cross-pollination by GMO crops grown on nearby conventional farms. This seed operation and its soil, under continuous organic management for last three decades, cannot be easily moved elsewhere.

A countywide campaign has begun to Save Nick’s Organic Farm and expand the scope of the working farm to include hands-on educational experiences for school children to learn about local food and agriculture.. For more information about the campaign, go to:
