Mission Statement

The Newburgh Urban Farm and Food Initiative believes that existing communities working together to retain 'ownership' of their neighborhoods and culture will develop innovative solutions that accomplish the important goal of empowering residents to work toward a just and resilient food system for the City of Newburgh.

Description

The Newburgh Urban Farm and Food Initiative (NUFFI) was begun in 2015 as an active network of local residents and community organizations that fosters community and residential gardens, the production and distribution of food for the City of Newburgh and provides outreach, public education and technical assistance around urban farming and gardening.

Programs include:

  • Increasing Community Gardens throughout the City - NUFFI assists residents and community organizations to install community gardens that produce healthy, ethnically appropriate food.
  • Holding the Newburgh Urban Farming Fair - An annual free outdoor event celebrating urban farming/gardening with exhibits, how-to demonstrations, children’s activities, and vendors.
  • Operating the Downing Park Urban Farm. The Farm serves as a "hub" for urban agriculture and ecology by growing healthy food and creating teachable examples of urban gardening in the City of Newburgh.
