Urban Farming in Kansas City Guide

Continuing with our goal to revitalize the urban neighborhoods in our core, UNI and their partners have created a second guide, this one designed to support those in our community interested in creating Urban Farms.

As a Midwestern city, Kansas City has strong cultural ties to agriculture and is extremely supportive of urban farming and local food systems. There are many organizations in the Kansas City area that work to increase food availability by encouraging and supporting urban farms. An urban farm can be a nonprofit venture or a for-profit business providing the local community with access to fresh produce, job training, health education and neighborhood revitalization.
