Rooted in growing food, we cultivate healing environments through creativity, innovation, and activism, which create pathways to freedom through food and healing. Learn more about our work at

Follow the drinking gourd...
Our logo was inspired by the legacy of the drinking gourd. "Follow the drinkin gourd" was a song used by conductors of the underground railroad to guide slaves to freedom using the big dipper, or in African culture, the imagery of the drinking gourd. Using the north star as their guide, enslaved men, women and children fought their way to freedom. We hope that through our work, we honor the stories and sacrifices of our ancestors. By reclaiming activism and growing food, we give the tools to foster resilience, growth and personal freedom.
