We strive to empower our clients with the knowledge and resources they need to start and optimize their operations, while promoting sustainability and education. We believe that increasing agricultural education would allow low income/low access areas the opportunity to provide healthy foods in their communities. Removing the lack of knowledge barrier of lack of knowledge could drastically increase the number of food systems and decrease the number of food insecure families in metropolitan areas.
