Who are the Urban Farming Guys and what’s their mission?
We are the urban experiment… the seed that died and went into the ground. Urban Pioneers… many who have purposefully uprooted from comfortable suburbia and relocated their homes and base of operations into one of the most blighted and dangerous zip codes in the U.S. 64127, Lykins Neighborhood, Kansas City.
We have put down our stake for the youth, the poor, and the next generation. We are here to mine the gold of human potential. We don’t claim this is good idea…. it is our lives…. We are cultivating the life of the inner-city. The Police helicopter is our favorite bird. Neighborhood meetings are our drama. Falling crime stats are our touchdown cheer. Hope is sprouting right out of the cracks in the asphalt. Just to see people walking their dogs around the block again is a sign of good things to come. Stay tuned for the great adventures to come as we document our journey from the inner-city out to some of the most difficult places on earth. See it all unfold as we give this mission everything we’ve got, no plan b. No driving home at the end of the day.
The Urban Farming Guys non-profit (501c3) mission is to establish sustainable communities in the most difficult and overlooked places on earth. It begins with local food and water security, alternative energy, and local economic resilience. We are running hard to put the most innovative, accessible, low tech and reproducible solutions for self-sustaining community into the hands of everyday people from the inner-cities to the nations in a way that is caught and spread on a local level. Together we are beating a path for communities and villages to THRIVE in any economy. We are putting them to the test in the hostile environment of the inner city of Kansas City’s Lykins Neighborhood at our U.S. base of operations. Champions are being raised as we entrust these opportunities to our inner-city youth. We aim to intercept and reshape the path of the next generation.
And lastly, we are multiplying our efforts by putting videos, diagrams, principals, parts lists and full technologies into your hands in an open-source knowledge base to make these tools reproducible around the world. Simultaneously we are working in both Mexico and extreme east India by building an off grid fish farm at orphanages in both places. We will soon return to build a bio-gas system to provide cooking fuel and electricity. UFG works to empower indigenous groups. Partnering to build economic forces from the inside out, creating jobs, building resilient communities with affordable healthy food access, and to establishing alternative water and energy solutions that ultimately preserve life in many geographic situations. This work deeply depends on your support to make a global impact. We urge you to help us equip the next generation to thrive.
