The food issues we have in cities are endemic. One single approach is not going to solve this convoluted and complicated problem. Jamie and Cassie are dedicated to chipping away at both ends. Making healthy food available to children in food desert communities while simultaneously teaching and encouraging new urban farmers in these very communities. Nothing is more empowering than growing food where there is little and creating a business that helps feed your family and your soul at the same time.
Jamie and Cassie are looking forward to the Grow Food Symposium where they can connect with other grassroots organizers, learn more about urban farming, and create lasting partnerships.
