ABOUT

Our Roots

 The Black Urban Gardening Society (BUGS) knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. The Black Urban Gardening Society, falls under the umbrella of the Council of Urban Development our Non-Profit Organization. We work to manifest a more sustainable global community by working together, teaching, training, organizing and designing ways that allow people to collaborate to overcome many of the environmental, economic, social, and ecological challenges that face poor minority communities of color around the world. The desire to positively effect these communities globally is why we decided to create the Council of Urban Development and The Black Urban Gardening Society is the first seed the we planted that has successfully grown.
