the project

We are planning to reclaim some blighted and vacant lots in the city of Memphis. Our overall vision is to transform the landscape and promote a sense of ownership within the community. 

the steps

In order for this to work we will need a few things :

  • land to expand the farming location
  • Materials for fencing the property
  • tractor rental 
  • seeds 
  • trees                                  

why we're doing it

 

We are tired of seeing the inner-city of Memphis deteriorating. Our community is challenged by crime and blight we believe that simply cleaning up trash and planting some plants will be a huge start. OUR farm will serve as a place for learning and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
