Michigan Urban Farming Initiative

Aiming to empower urban neighborhoods and address critical social problems, the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI) uses urban agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community.  Since 2011, MUFI’s farm has grown over 50,000 pounds of produce, which is provided to area households on a “pay what you can” basis, donated to food pantries, and sold to local markets and restaurants.  The nonprofit is currently focused on a three-acre area in Detroit’s North End community, where it is working to redevelop a vacant, distressed property into a community resource center that includes a nonprofit incubator space and a community garden with 150 raised beds.
