Reconnecting People to the Soil
We believe that everyone deserves access to healthy food. The lack of healthy food consumption negatively impacts your quality of life. As a radical act of Social Justice, we are growing healthy food and sharing it with our neighbors. Sharing it is great, but, we also empower our community by showing them how to grow and providing the necessary tools. We know for sure that if you change what you are eating, you can change the way you think, if we can get our community to change the way they are thinking, we can change the trajectory of our neighborhoods that are systematically impacted by the lack of healthy food accessibility.
to the Soil
Something magical happens when you interact with the soil. Here at Growing Food Growing People, we are holding space for those of us who have been kept away from such solace for so long. There's healing and peace when interacting with the soil. We come from the land but forgot the power of which it beholds. Here, we embrace the land for all it has to offer. We find ways to steward the land all while showing up as ourselves. We want to encourage a relationship of reciprocity between you and the land.
“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”
