We grow and provide fresh food for marginalized communities, combat illegal dumping through neighborhood clean up efforts and empower the next generation through our teen job program The Sunflower Institute.  In November 2021, we bought a house and 5 lots to start George Washington Carver Farms. We are building a community hub in honor of the Missouri legend. Carver was so much more than the sweet potato and peanut guy, he revolutionized American Agriculture, and empowered Black Farmers, while teaching us all how to take better care of this planet. George Washington Carver Farms restores abandoned and unsafe land. The land has transformed into a beautiful green landscape that creates space for fresh food, natives, outdoor education, jobs, healing, and justice.
