We don’t just plant fruits and veggies, we cultivate better communities. Our mission is simple: To empower communities to better themselves from within.

  1. I live in Mississippi an I applied for a small business minority loan to open a bakery in my home town. The loan was only for 10,000.00 an they want me to put up my house. I thought by going through this minority loan would give me a low interest rate for my start up business. I have a very good credit score an bake the best cakes and cookies around.
