Cultivate Kansas City is a locally grown nonprofit working to grow food, farms and communities for a healthier local food system. The organization helps members of the community make the connection between real food, good health and vibrant communities. Cultivate Kansas City engages growers, customers, volunteers and donors who live this vision.
Through Gibbs Road Farm, Cultivate Kansas City maintains direct farming experience. The urban farm grows fresh, local, certified organic food, which it makes available to the metro community. The farm also serves as a teaching tool, working with several apprentice farmers each year and opening its doors visitors.
Cultivate Kansas City shares its knowledge with area farmers and gives them the tools they need to succeed. The organization also develops new approaches and builds on existing ones to improve farm processes and output, then shares those techniques with local farmers so the whole community benefits.
The goal of Cultivate Kansas City is to bring together local farms, local food and the local community for healthy lives, a strong local economy, and a more sustainable future.
