- We supply affiliated growers with the technical equipment, supplies and consultation needed for success.
- Coming in 2019: Our container system can produce living microgreens and leafy green vegetables locally in a small space at low cost. Watch for info on this site soon.
- Advocacy and Project Development
- We develop gardening projects and firms in cooperation with non-profits and local companies.
- We build awareness and acceptance of healthy diets and local production.
- We develop new economic engines in disadvantaged communities.
- We are motivated by social issues stemming from the urban food desert, consisting of communities that are poorly served by the usual food distribution and marketing system with its vicious circle of poor nutrition and economic decline.
- We provide guidance regarding capital formation, equipment, logistics, training, production, distribution and management skills. Each local organization provides space, personnel and local networking.
