Cultivate KC

Cultivate Kansas City is a locally-grown non-profit working to grow food, farms and communities for a healthy local food system. Our work is to help Kansas City grow - literally, to grow fruits, vegetables, and good food and, metaphorically, to help our city grow through helping farmers and neighborhoods reclaim empty lots for production, through helping communities build capacity for growing good food, for addressing their food needs, and for creating the conditions for better health.
