Make a Donation

Urban Growers Collective is a grassroots Black-led, women-led non-profit organization, and while we do our best to operate on a very conservative budget, we prioritize paying our staff a living wage and practicing environmentally-friendly farming practices. Being good to our people and our planet is an expensive endeavor. We are asking you for help. We cannot do this important work without the support of our incredible community.

Your generous contribution educates teens, provides land and training for new BIPOC farmers, and feeds our communities through our Covid-19 emergency food relief and Fresh Moves Mobile Market.
