We have started the “community of gardens” as our central program to create a communication hub and safety net. We have expectations that for all the gardens we build, our clients will join the growing group of gardeners. We also welcome any avid gardener, school or existing organization to join and share their knowledge and experiences. We have quarterly meetings which we podcast. We discuss what is very current that season but also share tips with each other. Gardeners can share information on where to buy quality seeds and soils as well as other equipment. If a teacher is new to gardening, we want them to know they are not alone. We have many videos; blogs and a bibliography of books and lesson plans we share these resources online. We also have the UFE Academy as a mobile learning center and online presence.

Urban farming is an excellent way to teach children and adults the entire growth process of vegetables in a healthy way.
