Urban Agriculture

In 2013, we began working with local schools to help students of all ages learn about the benefits of native plants, food webs, and growing food locally. We are now announcing a plan for improving nutritional resilience and food self-sufficiency in the face of urban food deserts. While abundantly resourced neighborhoods have many choices for food purchase and growing, many neighborhoods have few if any good choices. While some urban neighborhoods have excellent programs for urban gardening and nutrition, we want to go further.

 

Nutrition 

 

To promote plants as a way to improve the health of people and the planet.

 

One of our responses to the COVID-19 pandemic was to provide health care providers with nutritional plants. These plants help to provide nourishment and well-being in these uniquely stressed and stressful times. Our work also is supported by an array of innovative ecological innovations including Root Pouches made of recycled water bottles, and Pittmoss eco-soils made of recycled paper and cardboard.

 

In 2021, we plan to roll out a revolutionary program - "Beans & Greens in a Bag" for those impacted most by the pandemic and living in urban food deserts. This program has the potential to provide year-round complete nutrition - in effect, a personal, portable raised-bed organic garden.

 

If you'd like to get information or get involved, please drop us a note and we'll talk.
