Global One Urban Farming sits on over 1 acre in East KCMO. Our mission started with the love to help people & the need to feed people. At Global One Urban Farming, our organization produces thousands of pounds of vegetables that we distribute free to help raise health levels.

 

We have a 20' by 50' high tunnel newly built, 8 metal raised beds & 15 wooden raised beds that we utilize to teach students gardening skills & the greenhouse process of producing vegetable plants. We teach, your food is your medicine & our goal is to impact our neighbors by striking people to grow their own food.

 

We are opening up the last 12,000 square feet by removing trees and debris for a new grow area. We are gearing up for our first Seniors Farmers Market & WIC program with Roadside Market & Volunteer First Saturdays starting on Saturday May 7th from 10am-1pm. Free food will be available.

Volunteers took initiative and built an 8 pallet deck area for seniors to gather, sit and chat in the garden.

Global One Urban Farming Community Garden is proud of the freshly dropped black soil from KCCG that we are now using all over the garden. Our progress since being incorporated in 2016, has been tremendous!

 

If someone wants to volunteer or get involved with the garden, contact Staroyce Nealy at 816 269 9203

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. We incorporated a non-profit, 501 c 3, charitable organization, Global One Urban Farming in 2017.  This allows us to produce and distribute food free to those in need in our USDA defined food desert communities. Quickly the garden spread to our elderly neighbors yard.  We enjoy talks while I harvest fresh vegetables for her kitchen. 

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.  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 from seed to harvest to children and adults.

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.

 

Global One Urban Farming is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable organization that grows organic vegetables

from seed, and distributes the produce free in Kansas City to low-income families,
neighborhood associations, youth, veterans and senior citizens to help those in need and to raise health levels.
