Children's Fresh Air Farm Centennial

Since 1923, children in Birmingham have been able to retreat to the Children's Fresh Air Farm in Bluff Park to experience recreation time outdoors, nourishing food, and fellowship with caring teachers and friends. One hundred years later, IPC is still welcoming campers each summer who are able to make significant academic gains in their reading and math skills, thanks to dedicated teachers and volunteers that make the Summer Learning Program possible.

Centennial Renovations at the Farm

Garden Renovations

  • Completed in November 2022, the centennial garden renovations create a more accessible and safe space for enjoying the beauty of nature. In addition, a massive hedge of invasive privet has been removed and replaced by tea olives to welcome all to the Farm.

Pool House Update

  • Plans were approved to completely renovate the 1950s-era cinder block pool house at the Farm, and this major property improvement is already underway! The project is expected to be completed for use by the end of May.
