ABOUT OUR ORGANIC GARDEN

Global One Urban Farming is a 501(c) (3) non-profit charitable organization that produces and distributes free organic vegetables at our 2 acre garden site to seniors, veterans, youth and low-income families with the goal of raising health levels throughout Kansas City USDA defined food insecurity communities. Our team converts unused land into sustainable organic community vegetable gardens. We also have partnered with the Kansas City School District where we teach Urban Farming Clubs in schools here in Kansas City, Missouri. We provide access to healthy organic vegetables made available in the food desert areas in our community of our neighbors.

 

We desire to change the way our city looks at healthy food for better overall health.
We promote in the community to eat fresh, healthy, affordable, and easy to access
vegetables. At one time Global One Urban Farming had four different organic garden locations in Kansas City, Missouri.

We have come to know our neighbors and our neighborhoods, which has helped us identify those who need fresh food. We reach out to church groups and neighborhood organizations. We supply bags of fresh organic vegetables to elderly citizens’ homes free of charge. We started with tomato plant in our own backyard, and now are, tilling, planting and harvesting 66,000 square feet (1.5 acres) of inner-city reclaimed and repurposed land. We distribute over 30,000 pounds of produce each year.

Pro-X  Interns June-July 2023

Global One Urban Farming  just hosted and completed a 5 week summer Pro-X project with 9 interns ages 14-17. Students committed to 25 hours each week and Global One Urban Farming  provided the interns with professional mentorship in Business, Agricultural & Entrepreneurship. The project also allowed the students to solve a problem and come up with a solution within the company relating to retaining volunteers. The interns worked with Global One Urban Farming, local farmers and Missouri Organics to add vermiculture by way of a subpod with red wigglers to make worm castings to provide soil gold for our plants. Students built metal and wooden garden beds, a fire pit, created homemade swings, artwork, germination, propagation of vegetables and learned the greenhouse process as well as growing outside from seed to harvest to preservative methods.

MoreAbout Us

Featured on Channel 5 News on Bales Avenue in 2009, the dream began when a mother taught her young son, Anthony Nealy, how to plant, nurture, harvest and eat his own vegetables.  It grew when Anthony and Staroyce married and Anthony found out his wife loved heirloom tomatoes, so they planted a 30’ x 40’ vegetable garden in the backyard of their urban home in 2009. Then, incorporated a non-profit, 501 c 3, charitable organization, Global One Urban Farming in 2016.  This allowed the start of production and distribution of vegetables free to those in need in our USDA defined food desert and food insecure communities. Quickly the garden spread to our elderly neighbors yard where we enjoyed talks and I harvested for her kitchen, a c

local church and into Kansas City, Missouri Public Schools.  

As we grew, we were able to use 1/2 an acre at Bishop Saundra McFadden Weavers church to continue growing our vegetables and giving them away free. We began germinating under the teachings of Fred and Helen Mercer from St. Joseph Mo.  We took control of the Washington Carver Greenhouse inside of African Centered College Preparatory Academy, which is where we first begin to teach the greenhouse process from seed to harvest teaching grades pre-k through 6th.  We were with ACCPA from 2013-2018.  We then started a garden club at Ewing Marion Kauffman School for 6th through 8th graders in which that program lasted from 2017-2019. In 2018, we purchased 1 acre of land at 4409 Cypress Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri 64130 where we produce and distribute free food and we now teach the process of growing vegetables and the greenhouse process from seed to harvest to children and adults.  In December 2023, we purchased .5 acres adjoining Global One Urban Farming, had it cleared of debris and trees and had the land leveled to get ready for the growing season of spring 2024. Our new storage and refrigeration garage is currently being built and to be completed January 2024.

ALWAYS FRESH PICKED

Teaching in KCMO Schools

 

 

We are able to distribute produce boxes to 150 households. During the pandemic, and with the help of our partners, we distributed vegetables to 1,800 households. We have donated Thousands of pounds of vegetables in Kansas City, Missouri and the surrounding communities. We have had over 100 Volunteers to participate.

We are now proud to say, we had our water meter installed July 2021!! We are currently having 12,000 more square feet of land, cleared of trees and debris. As of April 2022, we have leveled the land so we can now add black gold soil and get to planting!

 

Our next goal is supplying the high tunnel with necessary tools to teach and grow! We are looking to hire and pay youth scholars in the upcoming months!  

 

We have a new program with KIPP Academy where the youth will learn agriculture & entrepreneurship throughout the year.
