The food system is broken, friends.
It’s more than just broken. It’s smashed into tiny, little pieces.
More and more, convenience stores are becoming our nation’s grocery stores.
Our children’s school lunches have more nitrates than nutrition.
And, on Capitol Hill, policy keeps trumping purpose.
It’s no wonder nearly seventy percent of our nation is obese or overweight and diabetes is at all-time high.
Okay, enough with the doom and gloom.
Really, we’re positive peeps.
We love funked up music, laughing ourselves to endorphin overloads and everything that grabs you by the soul.
We love all that’s good. Because we believe in the power of good.
And we refuse to let greed take away our good.
We exist to make a positive difference.
We’re out to disrupt “that’s how it is” and make it what it should be.
All in the name of good.
And it starts with the food system.
Our contribution to good? Aquaponics.
A healthy, green oasis right smack dab in the middle of a food desert.
What was once a dilapidated, abandoned building is now a renewed source of life where we farm fresh, organic food.
By the community, for the community.
Yes, it starts with healthy food for the greater good.
But it will grow so much more beyond that.
We’re converting five stories of concrete into a farm.
We’re creating jobs that never before existed.
We’re helping a neighborhood get back its swagger.
And we’re committed to connecting cultures.
We are Urban Organics.
And this is just our first idea to fix what’s badly broken.
But we can’t do it alone.
What can you do? Help us pick up those tiny, little pieces.
Let’s fix it.
Together, we must think.
If you’re fed up with the food system,
feed the movement.
