FOOD SOVEREIGNTY THROUGH A COMMUNITY OF GARDENS

OUR HISTORY

The history of UFE (Urban Farming Education) extends far beyond a three-year-old non-profit. UFE roots come from one of the major landscaping companies in the Phoenix area, Agave Environmental Contracting, LLC. The founder, Mike McMahon, wanted to do more for the community, which led to the development of the largest community nursery in Arizona and located in the heart of Phoenix. This was Agave Farms, a place of harmony and community bonding but, most importantly, a place of action. At Agave farms, the Covid-19 Crisis Response partnership was developed, called Fresh Food Collab. More than 1 million pounds of produce were donated to the communities of the Phoenix area, making UFE not only a place of agricultural education but a place of resilience and action.

Become a volunteer!

Urban Farming Education's volunteer program is a great way for people to learn from our programs while giving back to the community. We ask our volunteers to share their interests and areas of expertise in case we have the opportunity to accommodate them in an area more aligned to their skills/interests.
