The Urban Farming Institute was founded in 2011 out of a global vision for a better food system and the local experience of neighborhood residents in Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. They foresaw the challenges to a thriving urban agriculture industry in Boston: farmer training, land access, public education and policy.
The Urban Farming Institute brings its vision of a just food system into neighborhoods where it creates partnerships between residents and farmers to create healthy places and healthy people. And UFI continues to honor its local roots in the leaders, staff and participants of the program.
