Urban Farm Academy (UFA) is the Nonprofit arm of Prudent Associates Agro-Industry, a Social Agritech Enterprise involved in beyond organic market farming and training to produce super foods (mushrooms, fruits, veggies mix etc) and organic farm TIPs (Technologies, Inputs and Produces) for end users’ urban dwellers.
UFA provides a platform for Empowering STEM Students, unemployed Youths & Women on Zero-Waste, Bio-intensive & Soil-less Agricultural Technologies to achieve SDGs 1-3, 9, 13&16 goals for Super foods’ security for urban dwellers. At UFA, participants learn, grow, eat and earn with urban farming and organic waste up-cycling technologies in a three-months’ cycle intensive on-the-farm training on a quarterly basis.
There will be three cohorts for the year 2019 with Cohort 01 scheduled to hold from January 28 – April 26, 2019, during which full time participants will learn at least ten urban farming skills. Participants who cannot afford to stay on the farm for three months have the opportunity to enroll in any of our short weekly courses.
