Local Food is for Everyone

Our Mission

Urban Seeds supports the health of our community by advocating for a quality, robust, and equitable local food system, to increase access to nourishing food for all. 

Our Vision

Urban Seeds’ vision is for a strong and vibrant local foods system in Southwest Indiana where farmers can prosper and all people in the community can make healthful food choices. 

Our Roots Run Deep

Urban Seeds was founded in 2005 as an urban community garden project. Based in Evansville, Indiana, we are working to create a food system that provides access to nourishing foods for all of our community members, with a focus on locally grown produce and locally prepared foods. We partner with schools, like-minded organizations, children’s centers, shelters, faith-based organizations, businesses and non-profits to create a healthy community, in which all of our neighbors are supported.
