Urban farming for sustainable commercial real estate

Engagement and wellbeing

Increase satisfaction and engagement by catering to human health and wellness, and engaging with people with a unique source of connection.

Sustainability

Raise awareness about environmental issues with your urban farm that can also help score points for certain sustainability certifications.

Marketing

Leverage your harvest to spread a bit of positivity amongst your network and community, while enhancing the visibility of your innovative initiative.

Installation, maintenance and harvest drop-off

MicroHabitat’s urban farming service includes the installation and maintenance of an urban farm in your building, all required certifications, accreditations and insurance.

Your turnkey urban farming service

Every urban farming project includes educational workshops. These hour-long hands-on activities or inspiring conferences engage and connect people with their urban farm, whether in-person or virtually.

Ultra local veggie harvests

Each urban farm yields 350 lbs to 500 lbs of veggies per season, and can be either distributed throughout your community, or donated to local food banks of your choice through our urban solidarity farms initiative.

We help bring about change within businesses and institutions by transforming city spaces into urban farms. Let's cultivate our cities to consume better and live better.

    Partnering with MicroHabitat has proven to be seamless for us. The gardeners and the team at our gardens look great, and more importantly, they produce tons of fresh, local food so we can give back to those in need. Tenants have responded to these programs in ways we did not expect. We are immensely proud of our partnership with MicroHabitat and look forward to expanding our locations and enjoying many sustainable years ahead.

    Partnering with Microhabitat was a natural fit as we work towards creating urban spaces that support biodiversity and the needs of our community. The specialized garden tours and hands-on workshops for our tenants have also promoted the importance of supporting our local communities and food sources.

    The installation of the urban garden has transformed our green space to provide our residents with healthy, accessible and sustainable agriculture. The urban garden has given the opportunity for our residents to connect with nature, meet new people, and experience where our food comes from. This initiative has been successful in providing our residents with the resources, knowledge and tools for improved wellness through gardening.
