Growing and Sustaining Wealth thru Urban Ag
What we're committed to
We're committed to a safe, clean, quality ecosystem for urban agriculture. We're committed to growing in ways that enrich the community's experiences with food. We want our family to generate sustainable wealth, and we are committed to helping other local families generate wealth sustainabily. Think and Grow is part of the movement to bring food closer to the people who need it most, and teaching the technologies needed to process it, create products from it and how to maximize profit when its sold at home and abroad.
Who we are
Think and Grow's team is diverse, intergenerational and technology proficient. Some of us have degrees, some of us don't but we're all experts in our field. We are all concerned about our changing environment and know that access to decent food, low cost energy and clean water are both human rights and social justice issues we have the ability to solve.
What COVID-19 has Taught us (So Far):
#1. The racial hierarchy social system we've inherited is annihilating our mental, spiritual and economic health. #2. Food insecurity and poor food options are part of a larger pattern of class and race segregation that's starving vulnerable communities. #3. Growing neighborhood based high value crops and processing is a pathway to economic self determination
Our first Think and Grow Farm has opened in West Philadelphia in partnership with the One Art Community Center (shout out to Malaika and One!!)
We’re collaborating with municipal partners, community organizations and families that want to build a circular economy in agriculture, waste management and renewable energy industries. If you want to jointly own a processing, sales or distribution business we’re open to joint ventures.
