The Urban Farming Guys are a band of about 20 families who consciously traded their peaceful suburban homesteads for one of Kansas City's worst neighborhoods. The tribe scooped up homes within five blocks of one another and recently acquired nine adjacent, vacant lots (with more on the horizon) onto which they're imposing crops for organic gardening designed to feed the community.
Like the sound of all that? These guys are definitely worth following and getting involved with. Learn more about their projects and how you can lend a hand here.
