Cultivate Kansas City
Kansas City, MO
Cultivate Kansas City is a nonprofit working to grow food, farms, and community in support of a sustainable and healthy local food system for all. Cultivate KC began in 2005 as the Kansas City Center for Urban Agriculture with the goal of promoting urban agriculture — the growing of food in city neighborhoods to feed other people. In the years since, Cultivate KC has grown into a resource provider and advocate in support of the production of fresh, nutritious produce in urban areas throughout the KC metro.
Cultivate KC, in partnership with Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, manages the New Roots for Refugees program, which trains refugees with agricultural experience to become independent farmers. The goal for farmers in the program is to learn how to successfully grow in the Kansas City region and to acquire the marketing skills and confidence to become independent small business owners.
