The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative

About The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative

The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to engage members of the community in sustainable agriculture. We believe that challenges unique to urban communities like Detroit (e.g., vacant land, food security) present a unique opportunity for community-supported agriculture. We hope to empower urban communities by using agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community while simultaneously reducing socioeconomic disparity.

“I loved how community oriented the farm was as well as how the farm helped to address food insecurity in the local area. I felt as if I was making a real difference through my hard work.”
