The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that seeks to engage community members in sustainable agriculture.  Challenges to metro-Detroit citizens (e.g., vacant land, poor diet, nutritional illiteracy, and food insecurity) present a unique opportunity for community-supported agriculture.  By using agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community, MUFI strengthens neighborhood involvement to achieve long-term improvement.
