The Urban Farming Guys, 1121 Myrtle Ave., KC, MO 64127
UFG work to establish self-sustaining solutions that can be replicated at the local and international level including urban fish farming and alternative energies. They put their lives in the mix to help those around them. By being a positive change, they have the opportunity to share how Christ answers prayers, brings healing, and renews lives. UFG does not preach the sermon, they live the sermon.

Whether it be working in the gardens, cleaning up the Makerspace, or building the greenhouse there’s always something to do! Cornerstone serves once a month at UFG. This is a great place for families to serve together, and the kids love to play in the dirt! Stayed tuned for the next serve day.
