We Love… Cultivate KC!
Of all the things we love (and we love many, many things…) FOOD is towards the top of the list. It gives energy and life, it can give good health and nutrition, and it can be very, very yummy. For this and many other reasons, we love… Cultivate Kansas City! Their vision is simple:
- Sustainable, community- engaged farms are scattered throughout the metro, providing an abundance of fresh and healthy food to city residents.
- There are opportunities for people to earn income through farming.
- Unused spaces are turned to food producing farms and gardens.
- Appropriately scaled agriculture is understood and practiced as an integral part of a beautiful, lively, and healthy neighborhood.
(quoted verbatim from their website)
We are so grateful for their hard work and dedication to such a wonderful cause. Because of Cultivate KC, local families, farmers and friends are getting real food. Not processed cheese. Not mystery chicken with unknown origins. Actual fruits and vegetables grown in gardens, distributed locally. So a big thank you to this wonderful organization for all their hard work and progress in our hometown. Now, eat your veggies! …and if you like knowing about doing a little gardening yourself (or how to change the world by doing so) here’s a little TED snack for you.
