why start an urban farm in bell, ca? why not just raise money for the shelter to buy fresh produce? is it important that the homeless in recovery eat organic, healthy food?
For the last five years, we have worked to build purpose driven solutions to those same questions.
Our farm is about growing food and nourishing the human spirit. We are creating a replicable model for urban farming while providing a platform for the homeless to participate in their healing through physical labor as well as gain skills they can leverage for future careers.
We know there's not just a history at the Bell Homeless Shelter, there is a future. This is why we are here. We are making an investment in the land to create a community that will thrive through pride of work and belief that farming and healthy food is total nourishment for the mind, the body, and the soul.
We strive not to be perfect, but to improve each day. We strive to GrowGood.
