The Home Farming Movement is collaboration with Triscuit and Urban Farming™ in which Triscuit and Urban Farming™ planted fifty community-based home farms in twenty cities across the United States in 2010, and this year we are planting 15 more community-based home farms in 5 cities. This creative collaboration has also inspired over 47,000 people to register their home-based farms with the Home Farming Movement and each garden is a part of the Urban Farming Global Food Chain®.
I've always loved that Triscuit is made with only a few simple ingredients and am excited to be working with them on such a wonderful project “helping people enjoy growing their own food at home.” — Taja Sevelle, Urban Farming™ Executive Director

On April 12, 2011, Triscuit and Urban Farming celebrated National Home Farming Day in Madison Square Park in New York City. We planted food, tasted food, sent postcards with seeds in them to friends, planted 2 gardens simultaneously in Tampa and Los Angeles, LIVE via satellite, and we brought the entire 3 city simulcast to New Yorkers on a huge big screen. It was a great day of fun, featuring gardening tips from Paul James, an Urban Farming™ informational booth, planting stations, tasting stations and non-stop action!
