There has been an ongoing issue with food and how it is grown, as well as its accessibility. Food deserts have been an urban problem in many cities, with a lot of lower-income residents eating fast and processed food. Urban farming has been on the rise, and Sow Much Good is one of many organizations that it has produced.
Robin Emmons, founder of Sow Much Good, left the corporate world to form the organization, which is a nonprofit community farm.
From the organization’s website:
Sow Much Good is committed to growing healthy communities in underserved neighborhoods by:
- Providing direct access to fresh, affordable food.
- Educating and engaging residents to adopt healthy eating habits.
- Advocating for the right of every person to have real food security.
To this date, the project has produced 30,000 lbs of chemical free, organic food. Check it out here.
