We Are UFE.

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 garden in Arizona and located in „El Corazon de 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 and 15,000 meals 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.

Join Our Community.

Food sovereignty is defined as a people’s right to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods. The Community of Gardens’ local model will assist in providing food sovereignty through a network of communal help.The Community of Gardens is an association connecting community gardens all around Arizona (and expanding throughout the United States shortly!). This community supports each other with agricultural knowledge, materials, equipment, and more!

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.
