The Urban Agriculture Program promotes growing food in an urban environment and provides information on:
  • Educational resources
  • Gleaning urban food sources
  • Growing fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Siting new gardens

The Resources section has material and educational tips to assist you in your growing efforts. The Examples section shows how community groups have utilized publicly and privately owned property to increase food growing acreage within Eugene.

Current successes include:
  • School Garden Project - Creates and sustains school gardens, where hands-on learning connects students with their environment and local food system (they install five new school gardens and cafeteria compost systems each year)
