Growing Communities One Seed at a Time!
URBAN COMMUNITY AGRINOMICS WELCOMES YOU!
Urban Community AgriNomics (UCAN) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded April 29th, 2016 by sisters, Delphine Godley Sellars and Lucille Godley Patterson. This organization reflects their desire to engage the community of Northern Durham with skills based in agriculture and providing a place for those within the community to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. UCAN has donated over 30,000lbs of fresh vegetables and fruits, through local harvesting and gleaning events sponsored by the Society of St. Andrews. UCAN provides opportunities for a diverse group of board members and volunteers. A partnership with Triangle Land Conservancy (TLC) lead to a User Licensure Agreement, resulting in the creation and development of the Catawba Trail Farm.

Join us every Saturday (weather permitting) from 9am to 12pm (Fall and Winter) or 8am to 11am (Summer) for a diversity of farm related activities and programming. For updates on our workdays, check our social media platforms!
You Can Make A Difference with UCAN!
UCAN at the Catawba Trail Farm is on land that was a part of the greater Stagville slave plantation. It holds much history of our African-American and Native American descendants. In all that we do, we make sure to continue telling the story of our ancestors and ensuring that the knowledge and skills they passed down to us, are passed down to the next generations. This history includes on-site buildings that UCAN is in the process of repurposing and preserving. We also plan to construct new and necessary infrastructures.
Your support, whether that is financial or sharing our organization and mission (or both!), is greatly appreciated by the Urban Community AgriNomics team. It’ll assist us in continuing to Grow Communities, One Seed At a Time!
