If Earth had a porch, what would it look like?
Earth’s Porch is focused on changing the way we perceive urban areas. This initiative sprouted from the idea that human beings need to be reconnected to the source of their food.
With Earth’s Porch, fresh produce is grown on vacant lots in areas experiencing lack of grocery stores, and which are consequently plagued by the obesity epidemic.
Current Locations: We are currently expanding the Research and Development location, finding the best crops and community connection to further invest in. Located in SW Birmingham, we are currently growing Arugula, Kale, Romaine, and Okra. This property is a multi-faceted location that requires routine maintenance. Volunteers are always welcome to reach out and engage.
If you would like to see an Earth’s Porch location thriving on a vacant lot in your neighborhood, please leave us a note.
