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.

Founded in 2012, the Urban Agriculture Collective of Charlottesville (UACC) is the continuation of an urban agriculture project called QCC Farms, started by the Quality Community Council (QCC). The idea for QCC Farms began with a group of residents at Friendship Court and 6th Street who were looking for a way to bridge the social barriers between their communities. The project started with a series of community conversations which culminated in our breaking ground at the Friendship Court Garden in May of 2007 and the 6th Street garden in June. When QCC disbanded in 2011, committed local residents and volunteers formed UACC to continue the valuable work of bringing community members together through urban agriculture. UACC has a joint plan of work with Virginia Organizing, a 501(c)(3) organization that accepts grants and donations on our behalf.

In the summer of 2018, UACC partnered 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. Visit UACC online here to learn more and receive updates.
