The mission of the Urban Mission Backyard Food Garden Center is to create a physical hub for models, materials, mentors, and manpower to help grow gardens in the windowsills, backyards, and empty lots of Steubenville, OH and beyond! They achieve this through a downtown garden center, acting as physical hub for the work of food security and sovereignty in the city. The goal is to help backyarders overcome any perceived boundaries to gardening, harvesting, preparing, and storing food on urban land!
The garden center is also the backyard for the backyardless, such as those who live in apartments, rent, or simply don't have the space to garden. We believe that these things combined will fight hunger by empowering the community to grow and appreciate their own food.
