Celebrating the 2016 Award Winners!

Each year, INUAg provides funding to urban farming projects building better food systems world-wide. We’re excited to announce the winners of this year’s International Leaders in Urban Ag Awards! #LeadUrbanAg

Urban farming provides at-risk communities access to the fresh food essential to good health, community development, social justice and, ultimately, equality. These projects are all working to bring fresh, local food to our cities. Thank you for sharing your work through INUAg’s Awards!
