Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Service Organizations, Human Services

Mission: The corporation's mission is to promote economic development and educate and foster a new generation of farmers in sustainable and chemical-free farming for the health and safety of residents of the lower rio grande valley and the environment.

Programs: The primary program during 2017 was the community garden. Plots of land were made available to small farmers and gardeners for their use. Gardens were to be worked in a manner consistent with the primary purpose of the organization to develop farming skills. The organization also operates a farmers market on the property to provide an outlet for produce grown. They acted as a facilitator for payments made between buyers and sellers, especially through acceptance of credit card payments on behalf of sellers. New in 2017 was a grant the organization received from the usda to expand their outreach, education and training regarding sustainable farming.
