Starting out of our own backyards, we're growing healthy, locally sourced, organic food for under-served communities with the goal of using vacant spaces throughout South Florida to grow food. Having a larger space gives us the chance to feed local communities on a larger scale and create sustainable food systems for neighborhoods across Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.
The food we currently grow will be used to always provide healthy organic food, free of charge at all of our community events. As we grow we hope to be able to develop a CSA (community-supported agriculture) program based on a sliding scale cost. For now, all food is being donated to community fridges in our areas.
Learning for some is a given while for others it's a distant and far-fetched obstacle. Educational institutions aren't accessible to everyone which is why we serve as a free resource through community-based workshops and programs that align with our core values of health, accessibility, and sustainability, engaging POC with our mama earth in a structural format that weens from dependency on corporations.
Programs and in-person workshops are TBD due to COVID-19. Follow us on Instagram @foodplugproject for educational content as well as updates.
Advocating for a better today, we strive to work closely with national and local organizations focused on radicalizing the environmental justice movement to ensure that marginalized folk are involved in every decision that will impact them. This means prison abolition, farmworker rights, racial justice, food empowerment, land sovereignty, and so much more within the legal space.
We believe in helping mobilize each other into a place of mass action that allows us to stand up against major corporations disrupting the needs of our communities on a daily basis.
What is a green economy if it doesn't account for the people most affected by environmental pollution and degradation? It is a bias, elitist, "green-washed" version of capitalism. We seek to build community through research and discussions with our people of color, the houseless, and the working-class in order to then encourage circular, truly sustainable, neighborhood economies while still striving to continuously provide access to basic human rights...like healthy food!
