Founded in 1994, Urban Harvest has garnered a well-deserved reputation as a leader in the local food movement. We've earned this role by adhering to clear and simple values and a focused mission:
Urban Harvest promotes healthy communities, sound nutrition and respect for the environment by educating children and adults and facilitating harvest and habitat gardens.
Under the direction of an all-volunteer board, Urban Harvest has grown from humble beginnings to employ a full-time staff and literally thousands of volunteers. Funding comes from nearly 1,500 annual memberships, and from individual and corporate donations, private foundations, and public grants.
