THE URBAN RANCH & FARM PROJECT
The Urban Ranch & Farm Project knows we can't change global values, but we know that motivated individuals can influence their communities. We serve those individuals, partnering with leaders to implement change on a local level. Driven by a belief that ordinary people make an extraordinary difference, we create opportunities for them to thrive by living lives of prosperous, nutritious sustainability right where they live. It's by uplifting their lives that we aim to change the world through their influence.
BY EMPOWERING THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO LIVE SUSTAINABLY, WE CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH THEIR INFLUENCE. We will research, develop, and teach the methods, tools, and technologies that equip people right where they live—producing fresh, organic food; generating green energy; capturing, filtering, and stewarding their own water; and processing their waste within closed loops—so they may achieve a triple bottom line of sustainability in PEOPLE, PLANET, and PROFIT.
Local Integration + Universal STEM Knowledge Base = Sustainable Communities

Believing everyone deserves to live wholesome, healthy lives, our vision is to grow fresh, organic food on unused, even blighted city sites—to wipe out food deserts—while producing renewable power, capturing rainwater, and processing waste responsibly to meet people's needs in sustainable ways that uplift people and build community.
