Want local produce grown right here in Memphis by a farming collective? The North Memphis Farmers Collective is an urban farming cooperative made up of SmartMule Urban Farms, In Season Produce, and Ronin Leo Organics. Their mission is to share resources to create sustainability, increase access to food, and make urban farming into a business able to change the most blighted and economically sapped parts of Memphis.
You can help the collective accomplish their goals by investing in their Kickstarter campaign. The funds gained by this campaign will go to purchasing tools, heavy equipment, and supplies to continue restoring and cultivating more than 4 acres of empty lots the group already has been working to improve.
This group would like to see Memphis become a self-sustaining, healthy environment for this generation and the next. They have battled obstacles along the way, but have continued to farm for the surrounding Memphis community.
