City of Green Accepting Proposals for
the Historic Levi J. Hartong Farmstead in Southgate Park

The City is accepting proposals for the lease of the historic Hartong Farmstead through November 1, 2019.  The city is looking for proposals that embrace the idea of returning the land to its original and historic use - a small scale agricultural farm.  Applicants must demonstrate substantial knowledge of ecologically sustainable production and management practices and an understanding of what practices are best suited to this ecologically sensitive site.  Built in 1883, the Hartong Farmstead is located within city-owned Southgate Park and is one of two properties in Green listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
