Looking to do some good with your charitable donations this year? Looking for an opportunity to make a difference in changing the lives and the health within our community? We have the perfect opportunity for you to realize this and more when you give the gift of giving.

The Urban Farming Institute is a recognized charity under section {501(C) (3)}; of the Internal Revenue Service; as such all donations and sponsorships are tax deductible. Here at the Institute our mission is in educating the community in the life benefits that can be derived from the production of densely nutritious foods in a local urban environment thereby improving the health standards and food choices that our residents have here in Southern Florida.

Our efforts target the schools, libraries, as well as individuals and corporations looking to develop healthier choice food systems for their organizations and your contributions’ would go a long way in helping us to achieve this reality.

Your generous tax deductible donation will make a difference in the lives of the people we look to educate on a daily basis and will enlighten them as to where and how their food is actually produced, marketed and priced and how many in our community are shut out from many of these food sources.

Help us Help our Planet, help us help our children, help us change the community!!

UFI FarmShare Adventure CSA

FarmShare Adventure CSA

The Urban Farming Institute’s FarmShare Adventure CSA is a simple but healthy idea, much like purchasing a magazine subscription. In the FarmShare CSA, a customer buys a “Share” of a farmer’s harvest at the beginning of the growing season. After, which the member visits the farm, or the Urban Farming Institute’s Warehouse Market, to pickup their bagged or boxed “Share” for the week.
