We don’t just plant fruits and veggies, we cultivate better communities. Our mission is simple: To empower communities to better themselves from within. In South Phoenix, and other challenged communities where we work, there are high rates of incarceration, poor health choices and a low ranking education system. So how do we combat these challenges? Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). That just means we don’t give a hand out, we give the community a hand up.
