Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture

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.
