Our Focus


Our projects aims to address the issues of poverty, hunger, obesity, and homelessness. Our goal is to create sustainable natural communities that provide permanent solutions for economic stability and preservation of natural resources with a focus on sustainability. We are dedicated to uniting people in order to strengthen the viability of the community. The location of our garden is an extreme food desert. Many of the residents spend a large percentage of their income on energy and food. 


We help people achieve economic freedom by educating people on alternative clean energy that will save money and the environment. Also by encouraging the planting of fresh produce we help communities reduce food cost and obesity. We also remodel distressed properties in neighborhood and transform people in poverty into homeowners.  We are currently creating eco-villages with permaculture gardens for families in an affordable sustainable model.

Our Impact


Our Community Kitchens projects help feed the homeless and people in poverty. We give nutritious hot meals to local shelters, and people living on the streets. We also give fresh fruits and vegetables to people in poverty, shelters, and the homeless.


Our programs help encourage sustainability, reducing waste, and protecting our natural resources.Our programs provide an opportunity for children who may have never been exposed to the arts and culture to gain positive perspective on life and give them something to look forward to.


Our programs inspire positive outlets for expression that stimulate the minds of children which in turn, may help them to improve in their academics.Our programs encourage children to dream and achieve their goals and aspirations, while showing that they can be and do anything with hard work and determination.We are continuing to expand our non profit and helping with more than just books now. We help with financial independence, health, natural living, and career advancement.
