The Barter Market

The Barter Market is a part of the Urban Farm Collective. Everyone involved with the UFC, from volunteer administrators to land sharers and gardeners, receives one barter buck for each hour they contribute.


All hours contributed are created equally-whether you’re managing a garden or pulling weeds. You can exchange the barter bucks that you’ve earned for produce at the weekly Bartering Market!

One Barter Buck is equivalent to one hour of work

All hours contributed are equal, whether you’re managing a garden or pulling weeds.

Trade them for fresh produce

Generally, a few hours of work each week can earn you enough barter bucks to get fresh produce from June through October.
