Community Based Agriculture

Urban Farming’s Community Based Agriculture (CBA) program targets the individuals located within the “food deserts” in Gary, Indiana. More specifically, our team plans to use the preexisting networks in Gary’s community, such as users of food pantries, bus commuters, churches and other religious groups, and residents that interact with Peace Garden and Farms.

Our Three Primary Goals


1) Improve the availability of and accessibility to fresh produce within Gary’s community by incorporating produce from Peace Garden and Farms

2) Address current dietary concerns and related health disparities amongst the population of Gary

3) Promote food sovereignty by providing educational components for the community to better understand their rights for easily accessible, nutritious, and culturally appropriate food.
