Urban Acres has leased a space on Beckley at Greenbriar with plans for a cafe and “urban farmstead” that would include an aquaponic system, a chicken coop, bee hives and a garden.

To renovate the former service station, build a kitchen and outdoor seating area and create all of the farm-related stuff is expected to cost about $30,000. That’s why Urban Acres, the locally owned grocer that specializes in local organic food, this week launched a Kickstarter campaign.
