Our Philosophy

Change occurs when there is a collective will for action, and is a response to the common call for local, fresh and healthy food. We are unifying the thousands of urban agriculture projects all over New York City by building a network that empowers farmers and communities alike with resources, information and tools to grow local food networks.

Our efforts are grassroots, our intentions noble and our hunger insatiable.


We at agrowculture believe that true, sustainable change is rooted in local community projects and individual efforts, and that the transformation of the urban food system starts with you and me.

Urban agriculture reduces our dependence on petroleum-based products while increasing food security, community health and stimulating local commerce.
