The Urban Farming Institute of Boston’s mission is to develop and promote urban farming as a Commercial sector that creates green collar jobs for residents; and to engage urban communities in building a healthier and more locally based food system.
UFI is creating a new paradigm by educating Massachusetts’ communities in urban farming.
Local land plots are prepared, mapped, and utilized for training and business purposes.
We educate community, city, and state stakeholders in support of appropriate policy changes regarding land use and urban farming practices.
The land UFI acquires is reclaimed and made into a sustainable farms. At ¼ of an acre or more, these plots provide a steady stream of produce.
