- Raleigh, NC
Our mission is to empower communities to secure their own food and energy sources.
We build community, school and teaching gardens as part of a local food system. As we accumulate knowledge and experience we add these resources to our open-source, online library; a resource to make our efforts as replicable as possible.
In community gardens we teach people to cultivate nutritious food for themselves, creating a systemic change in combating malnutrition and access issues in areas of low socioeconomic status.
By developing outdoor classrooms and curricula at local schools, K-12, we will extend the reach of our educational programs to children in the greater Raleigh area.
Through learning farms and online data sharing, we will launch workshops and provide the training necessary for people to create their own job opportunities while reconnecting with principles of ecology and self-reliance.
