Fleet Farming is a non-profit urban agriculture program whose mission is to empower all generations to grow food to increase local food accessibility. Fleet Farming has a vision to create localized food systems, which bring communities together for a healthier, more connected world. Fleet Farming accomplishes this by converting underutilized lawn space into productive localized edible gardens or micro farms, ultimately changing the cycle of food.
