Urban Farm Organics, or UFO for short, is a produce company dedicated to improving the lifestyles of the people Phoenix, Arizona (and eventually the US). Through partnerships with schools and other local organizations, we educate people about the advantages of local and fresh food, and how to go about growing produce in the city. In addition to our community education efforts, we have our own grow operations where we grow fresh produce that supplies nearby restaurants and schools.
Not able to make it out to the farm? UFO also visit schools and classrooms, not only teaching youth how to grow but motivating entire schools to be more active and plant stuff!
We teach a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Program on location at one of our many agricultural sites where students learn the art, science, and techniques of growing healthy plants.
With only 6% of farmers under 35, we want to train the next generation of farmers with sustainable growing techniques.
Throughout our educational efforts, we want to re-create a culture of appreciation for the entire journey of our food, from farm to table.
This is one of our growing operations in Phoenix, Arizona before and after a year of developing our growing operation. The hard work paid off, and now we're one step closer to providing enough local food to the Valley of the Sun.
