What we do:
CCUA envisions a community transformed by good food for all and the skills to grow it. We work to enhance our community’s health by connecting people to agriculture and the land through hands-on learning opportunities from seed to plate.
Why we’re great:
Home gardening empowers families to increase their consumption of healthy food and promotes physical activity. This year we served 4,500+ people by donating fresh produce, constructing gardens, and teaching people a range of gardening skills.
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
A vegetable garden is a powerful place to learn. We are generating excitement at the Urban Farm, area schools, and backyards around town about gardening, assisting with meaningful do-it-yourself projects, and changing daily food habits.
