Plans for a new agriculture-focused park in central Columbia received a $50,000 grant from the National Association of Conservation Districts.

.

This grant was one of many that the Boone County Soil and Water Conservation District applied for in late 2015 for the Friends of the Farm project, a collaborative effort with the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture, the Columbia Farmers Market, Sustainable Farms and Communities and Columbia Parks and Recreation.

.

This project is huge in establishing a permanent agriculture structure in Columbia, said Corrina Smith, manager of the farmers market. This grant is extremely exciting because the more funding, the more likely this is to happen.

.

The park, which is meant to establish a place for residents and visitors to learn about sustainable food production, has been proposed on a 10-acre plot of land at Clary-Shy Park  the home of the Activity & Recreation Center and the Columbia Farmers Market. The site hosted the Boone County Fair until 1992.

.

Whats nice about that is it brings the site back to about what it used to be, Parks and Recreation Director Mike Griggs said. It was that agriculture center with the fair where you went to show cattle or see things like the tractor pull, so its good to see this happening where that took place.

.

The grant money will be used to propose a site plan and gather public input. Griggs said his department has discussed the project with Simon Oswald Architecture and hopes to have renderings of the park before public information session events set for August.

Park features might include an educational urban farm, demonstration gardens, an outdoor classroom and a facility for community events and the farmers market. Griggs said a playground and other amenities might be included in the park design.
