About City Growers
At City Growers, we use urban agriculture to teach kids about where food comes from, and why it matters. Founded in 2011 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit education organization, over 22,000 students have participated in hands-on workshops on the farm, in the classroom and in school gardens.
City Growers empowers young people to envision a greener and healthier future. We aim to close a fundamental gap in the experience of urban children by creating opportunities for them to meaningfully interact with the natural world and reconnect with foods origin from the earth. We want to see more green roofs, more community gardens, more urban farms, equal access to healthy food, cleaner air and waterways, and more innovative urban spaces to grow and learn. It is our duty and honor to provide today's children the tools and inspiration they need to change the world tomorrow.
