Our Mission: To build a resilient, community-driven urban agriculture sector that provides a fair, healthy, sustainable food system for all Arlingtonians.

FOUA's Victory Garden Project: In response to the COVID-19 global health crisis, Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture is working to support and expand efforts to grow fresh produce here in Arlington. This global crisis will have long lasting health and economic impacts for our local community. Access to fresh, nutritious produce will become an ever increasing need that can be met, in part, by growing our own food. Individuals, churches, schools, and other sites are stepping up to grow food for our neighbors in need.
