Our hearts guide us in our belief in sharing knowledge, collaborating and constant learning.

While the Foundation’s focus is on community projects, we also encourage and guide households to start their own urban farms.

Planting vegetables, herbs and plants is both therapeutic and rewarding; it has the power to bring communities together and help them thrive.

We use agroecology and permaculture philosophies to assist in the development of each project on which we work on.

Agroecology uses a whole-systems approach to agriculture and food systems development based on traditional knowledge, alternative agriculture, and local food system experiences. It links ecology, culture, economics, and society to sustain agricultural production, healthy environments, and viable food and farming communities.
