The Home Farming movement

Urban Farming is collaborating with Triscuit to create fifty community-based home farms in twenty cities across the United States in 2010. The program aims to convert otherwise unused land into a source of fresh food for the communities.

“I’ve always loved that Triscuit is made with only a few simple ingredients and am excited to be working with them on such a wonderful project – helping people enjoy growing their own food at home.”
- Taja Sevelle, Urban Farming Executive Director

Urban Farming is proud to be partnered with the Triscuit Home Farming Movement to plant fifty community-based Home Farms in twenty cities across the United States this year. The Home Farming Movement encourages people to connect back to the simple joy of planting their own food at home. It is so easy to get started and you will find many planting tips on the Triscuit.com/homefarming web site, in addition to learning more about the project on urbanfarming.org.

You may also follow the Urban Farming tour to each of the twenty cities and watch the Urban Farming Family plant the fifty Community-Based Home Farms. We will continue to feature short films of the RV traveling around the country with Michael Travis, Trevor Johnson, Oba Carr, ‘Tee” Latoris Shepperd, Taylor Mullen, Sean Escalante. The short films will help you keep track of where we are planting and when we will be in your town! Additionally, you will be able to see photos of each of the gardens progress every two weeks! Watch them grow and get to know the volunteers who have adopted the gardens and are helping to take care of them! You may also follow us on Twitter and we encourage you become a part of the Urban Farming Movement to End Hunger in Our Generation by volunteering to adopt an Urban Farming Garden in your city by contacting us at our main office or signing up on line. Adopting an Urban Farming Garden is easy! All you have to do is get a group of a few of your friends together and join us twice a month for one hour each time as we plant, weed and water the garden. You may choose a special name for your group and send us photos of your group in action, helping out on the garden! We will post them on the web site and when you want to show your friends and family, just click on your country, city and garden! All of the food from the Urban Farming Community Gardens is free for the community! Even if you do not need the food yourself, you will feel the joy of contributing to your community!

There are other ways to be a part of the Urban Farming Mission to End Hunger in Our Generation. The Triscuit Home Farming Movement is a great way to begin! Enjoy fresh vegetables from your own garden by starting a garden in your home or even grow food in your apartment! If you choose to donate some of the food from your own garden to a local food bank or soup kitchen, please let us know by registering your garden on the Urban Farming Website! We will recognize your garden as one that is a part of the Global Urban Farming Mission to End Hunger in Our Generation! You may also register your garden on the Triscuit.com/homefarming website and join a network of people just like you that are connecting back to the basics of growing their own food. Enjoy sharing garden tips from The Gardener Guy- Paul James and learning how easy it is to get started! It is also a great way to cut down on your monthly food budget and teach friends and family about healthy eating food!
