Food For All Nonprofit and Partners

One of my long-term goals is to start a nonprofit, organic permaculture farm and food forest powered by solar. I have been working this goal with some humble backyard organic gardening, volunteering, and farm work over the years, some of which I have chronicled here and in other posts. If you would like to be involved in this, feel free to comment.

2018:

I worked at six different farms in spring, summer, and fall of 2018, some of which were really rewarding. The one I enjoyed the most is a chemical-free farm where we grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs. The herbs we grow are sold to a tea company run by the owner of the farm that empowers refugee and immigrant farmers by giving them seedlings and buying their herbs. Another I really enjoyed is a like-minded, certified organic, sustainable no-till farm that uses almost no gas-powered equipment.  This season in my small backyard, I also grew 330 pounds of produce, 65 pounds of which I donated to meal sites for homeless folks at Open Table in Providence RI. Everything in my garden this year was started from organic seed myself, except for two eggplant transplants and a few lacinato kale, spinach, and lettuce transplants. All was grown organically: Go here to see the pictures:

Spring and Summer 2017: 

My backyard garden is very small because I only have so much space there in rainy, cold, industrial Providence RI but I try to do the best I can there.

Summer 2013

Here are pictures from some of my experience WWOOFing. This piece of land as far as I know is now tragically a parking lot. It was developed for a hotel:

For potential partners:

You will never see an advertisement on this site and it will always be free. I do this without any compensation because the point is to reach as many people as possible regardless of class, race, gender, orientation, or any other social construct.  I would, however, like to partner with prison abolitionists, anarchists, anti-capitalists, organizers, social and environmental activists, indigenous rights groups, artists, bloggers and independent journalists to create awareness and incite action. I can post a permanent link on this page to your content if you ask and I think the cause you’re promoting is a good one. If you run a startup charity or a registered nonprofit I can list your organization on the charities page if you would like any additional exposure.

If you would like to be listed here or on the charities page, feel free to send me a message. I only want to exchange exposure and impact. I think this is the only way advertising should be done to avoid the constant pervasiveness of advertisements for products and services that are useless to most people.

  2. Simply wish to say your article is surprising. The clarity in your post is just excellent
    and i can assume you are an expert on this subject.
    Well with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.

  3. Hey, I like your project, and wish you success . I am thinking of volunteering on Staten Island at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center community garden to grow and distribute food for homeless and economically disadvantaged . they have 2 acres and want to expand to 4 acres next spring. I built a greenhouse in my back yard last fall . We would love for you to visit whenever you have time. Best Regards, Vin and Rosie

  7. Any advice for a family of 5 seeking financial independence via farming and sustainable living. Making just enough money to be on assistance, then making “too much” and not being able to afford food is a horrible cycle. First time farmers wanting to do things responsibly.

    • That is a horrible cycle. Could you tell me how much land you have, where it’s located, what type of soil you have, what’s on it currently, and what resources you have now, (seeds, tools, livestock, etc)? I can try to give you advice with more information.
