Urban Agriculture Collective of Charlottesville

 UACC is partnering with City Schoolyard Garden to continue our work bringing people together, in the garden, and in the community. We will continue the conversations we started years ago – conversations that help break down the social barriers that separate neighborhoods. Stay tuned right here for updates in our upcoming new blog.

Visit www.urbanagcville.org or contact Farm and Foodroots Program Director Richard Morris to learn more about UACC’s many accomplishments.

Through a collectively run multi-site urban farm, UACC increases the availability and consumption of fresh, organically grown fruits and vegetables among Charlottesville residents with limited financial resources. In partnership with community volunteers and property owners, UACC currently manages over 32,000 square feet of vegetable gardens and an expanding community orchard and native plant and pollinator sanctuary. We have the capacity to produce over 17,000 pounds of fresh produce annually, all of which we distribute free of charge. Our gardens are located in the Friendship CourtSixth Street, and South First Street communities in the Ridge Street Neighborhood and on West Street in the 10th and Page Neighborhood.
