What our community say

"Before we got involved with Urban Farming Education, we really had little connection to the land on which the food we were sharing with the community was actually being grown and harvested. The Urban Farming Education is an opportunity to share with people who may not be aware that you know food comes from the ground, we're connected to the ground."
Pastor Sarah — Grace Lutheran Church
"Kids already come with a lot of struggles on their shoulders and so another way for them to escape that is providing them with different activities that will allow them to rethink their goals in life."
Maria Meyer - Teacher for Lattie Coor School
"Grace takes time to make sure everything is fresh and new so that we don't feed people something that we wouldn't eat ourselves."
Sheila Petry - Director on the Grace Lutheran Church Council
