The purpose of The Urban Farm is to improve the lives of children living in high risk, urbanized neighborhoods by helping to create a sense of positive self-regard and self-reliance, a strong work ethic, and hope. An underlying value of TUF is that urban children, youth and their families will be exposed to the positive values of farm life â€” respect for the environment, appreciation for animals and plants, team spirit and the satisfaction of hard work leading to a job well done. A side effect of TUF is that kids find a sense of belonging and independence, in short, a sense of community. Children from all manner of circumstances find a â€ślevel playing fieldâ€ť at The Farm. A visitor to The Farm once remarked, â€śAt first I thought you were trying to give kids a glimpse of farm life, now I see that you are trying to give kids a life.â€ť TUF is a place where children can quietly grow up.
