Mission Statement

Urban Patchwork is a neighborhood-based community organization providing safe, accessible foods grown close to home while offering farmers job opportunities that help their families and our local economy thrive. Through community involvement, education and research we bring neighbors closer to our food sources and closer to each other.

Description

Urban Patchwork (UP) is a city-wide network of neighborhood farms and chicken coops currently located in Austin, TX. We operate by partnering with members of communities to farm small pieces of land (usually parts of people's unused yard space) within neighborhood boundaries. Together we raise chickens for eggs, grow vegetables for food, and care for ponds that provide a reservoir for rainwater catchment, fertilizer for our gardens, and fish to eat.
