Natural Urban Farming, or “nurbaculture”, is the practice of recovering broken cultural connections to the land, increasing food security, and providing economic opportunities in farming by using ecologically sustainable farming techniques to cultivate, process, and distribute food in or around villages, towns, cities or other concentrations of population.

The PUENTES’ Natural Urban Farming Practitioner Program provides technical training and certification in nurbaculture techniques and practices, as well as management and business skills training, in order to transform participants into successful urban farmer practitioners. PUENTES continues to develop and revise the NAP curriculum to add more entrepreneurship, business practice, finance and land use planning, and even more explicit instruction and experience to ensure participant have all the tools they need to experience high degrees of success once they have graduated from the program.
