Mission Statement

The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to engage members of the Michigan community in sustainable agriculture.

Description

We believe that challenges unique to the Michigan community (e.g., vacant land, poor diet, nutritional illiteracy, and food insecurity) present a unique opportunity for community-supported agriculture. Using agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community--while simultaneously reducing socioeconomic disparity--we hope to empower urban communities.

We are hosting formal workdays every Saturday during the Summer of 2013!
No need to sign-up, just show up!
All ages, group sizes, and abilities welcome!

If you would like to schedule a workday with us outside of our Saturday Workdays, then please contact:
