No I had not joined any groups, But I will search that out and join into

some of the talks about support poorer communities.  I am the founder of 501 c3

charity. Just starting out. But our goal is to build indoor farms to grow fish, fruits and vegetables in one system. The food will be sold to local businesses and the money uses to increase support to needy communities.  Along with healthy organic food. Still searching for land to rent or donated for the project. All donation all tax deductible for full market value.  We want to change the lives for the better of many youths and families

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be part of this community. Learning so much about working together in community in this wonderful age. A non-profit group I'm connected with is developing a new community garden across from an elementary school, a food guide for my area of Arkansas, and several other projects. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your projects, too!
