The Urban Agriculture Working Group focuses on expanding gardens at schools, houses of worship and other community settings and increasing access to fresh produce through pantry donations from gardens.
- Support and promote new community gardens and improvement of existing gardens.
- Act as a resource to create connections between gardeners and pantries in an effort to increase access and use of fresh, healthy, locally grown fruit, vegetables and herbs by clients.
The Urban Agriculture Working Group meets every third Monday of each month from 10 - 11:30 a.m. (Exception: On months where a FFC Joint Work Group meeting takes place, the regular Urban Ag. Work Group meeting will be replaced by the quarterly meeting day and time..)
