Urban Agriculture Collective

Working together to grow and share healthy food cultivates healthy communities.

Founding Mission of Urban Agriculture Collective

Cultivate Charlottesville’s Urban Agriculture Collective (UAC) builds food equity by working with public housing residents to grow fresh healthy food. At its height, UAC has grown as much as 17,000 pounds of produce per year, which is shared, at no cost, with hundreds of local families experiencing food insecurity. Recently downsized due to development pressure, UAC is working with residents and partners to identify new land to on which to grow and build food equity in our community.
