A group of teenagers heard that a city farm in Gateshead was under threat, so they offered to spend their summer holidays helping out.
Bill Quay Farm is now being run by a charity after the council pulled its funding.
However, it will only stay open if more than £100,000 a year can be raised.
Katie Oakes has the full report.
A community farm in Gateshead has been saved from closure.
Bill Quay Farm in Pelaw was originally facing closure due to cuts in government funding.
However, councillors instead agreed to defer their decision on the farm's future to allow its management time to develop a business plan to keep the farm open.
Gateshead Council today announced that it was happy that a way has been found for the farm to be run without its financial support.
The responsibility for operating the Bill Quay Community Farm has now been transferred from the council to the Bill Quay Community Farm Association.
