This website is under construction. Keep an eye out for new resources coming soon!

The goal of the University of Maryland Extension Urban Agriculture Program is to help urban residents learn what they need to better achieve their urban agriculture goals. 

Most of the resources on this website are designed with urban farmers and urban agriculture entrepreneurs in mind. The tabs above will help you find upcoming classes and online educational resources. 

Home gardening and community gardening are just as important parts of urban agriculture. If you grow for yourself rather than for sale, we highly recommend our Home and Garden Information Center as an educational resource. 

If want one-on-one help, click on the appropriate button on the right.

Some resources on this website are based on work supported by USDA/NIFA under Award Number 2015-49200-24225, through Northest Extension Risk Management Education.
