About Urban Seeds

Urban Seeds comes alongside residents, and together, we grow community - one urban garden at a time. Urban Seeds offers neighborhoods the essential resources for community gardens, including on-going technical expertise with:

  • 1. Securing sustainable land for gardens;
  • 2. Designing and building gardens;
  • 3. Supporting garden organization, leadership, outreach and maintenance;
  • 4. Utilizing gardens as extraordinary places for learning and healthy living; and
  • 5. Linking gardens with related local food system projects and policy.

Urban Seeds envisions a thriving and connected network of deeply-rooted community gardens, conceived of, cultivated and supported by local residents and institutions throughout the urban neighborhoods of Metro Richmond.
