Urban Farming began in 2005 with three gardens in Detroit, Michigan, which is the Urban Farming Headquarter City. In just four and a half growing seasons, Urban Farming has now expanded into thirty cities across the United States and abroad with the equivalent of over eight hundred gardens based off of a twenty by twenty foot garden size. A twenty by twenty foot Urban Farming Garden takes two semi-trucks of topsoil to create.

In addition to the Urban Farming Garden programs, the Urban Farming Model includes solutions to some of the contributing factors to hunger such as unemployment, lack of access to healthy produce and poor educational opportunities. Urban Farming have programs designed to address these issues: Health and Wellness, Entrepreneurship and Money Management, Green Collar Jobs and Environmental Justice, and Youth and Adult Ambassador Program.

The Urban Farming vision is global and their mission is to end hunger in our generation by planting food on unused land and space for people in need and empowering suffering communities.

Urban Farming is collaborating with Triscuit to create fifty community-based home farms in twenty cities across the United States in 2010. The program aims to convert otherwise unused land into a source of fresh food for the communities.
