Urban Seeds was founded in 2005 as an urban community garden project. Based in Evansville, Indiana, our 501c3 non-profit organization now works to create food systems that provide access to nourishing foods for all of our community members, with a focus on locally grown produce and locally prepared foods.
We have compiled the Shop Fresh, Shop Local food guide, currently undergoing an update, as we endeavor to support our local food economy.
We partner with schools, children’s centers, shelters, faith-based organizations, businesses and non-profits to create a healthy community, in which all of our neighbors are supported — be it as a food grower, a food producer, or a food consumer. The Evansville area is home to a deep disparity in access to nourishing food that we hope to lessen in the coming years, through community partnerships and outreach.
