Wonderland Urban Agriculture Center
We support sustainable urban ag. research, education, and projects that increase representation of underrepresented minorities.
Wonderland Urban Agriculture Center (WUAC) is a nonprofit urban teaching farm that supports sustainable agriculture research, education/teaching, and extension projects that increase participation by women, underrepresented minorities, historically underserved producers and underserved communities. WUAC's mission is to serve as a prototype for sustainable urban agriculture. By advancing sustainable agriculture and healthy cooking for urban communities and spearheading community partnerships, WUAC promotes healthy and environmentally sound practices that provide a convenient, vigorous, and sustainable food system for local urban communities.
Our programs include:
Sustainable Habitat Improvement and Farm Training (SHIFT) - WUAC seeks to expand public knowledge of sustainable farming techniques that improve food and water security, focusing on growing great food, farms and farmers. Through Grower Education, the organization educates and recruits growers to become sustainable farmers.
