knowing how to grow food is an important step toward developing a locally-owned food system that builds sufficiency and community power.

The more we understand about growing and preparing food, the healthier we are.  

Growing food, especially in urban areas and on small tracts of land, is a viable way for people to feed themselves.  Our goal is to create a more just and sustainable future and develop more ecologically, economically and socially sound models of food production and distribution.
