To make healthy foods accessible and affordable in the community through education and permaculture.
The challenges that we face as a nation are piling up. Issues such as economic instability, access to fresh produce due to food deserts, food supply shortages, and the demands of every day life make it difficult for families to get the nutrition they need.
Our solution addressing these issues: make growing fresh produce accessible with education, outreach, tools and seeds.
