What does it take to sustain a local farming initiative? How do we generate grassroots support that affords us the leverage to independently train and resource a new generation of Black farmers? How can you join us in advancing this extension of our commitment to building a resilient local food pipeline between South Chicago and Pembroke Township? Join our Greens Share initiative!

Beginning in June 2013 for a harvest period of 12 weeks, our Rotating Apprenticeship Farmer Training participants will be delivering to you between 5 and 8 bunches of freshly harvested local greens each week. This Greens Share box may include a mix of collard, kale, mustard, lettuce and assorted herbs each week.

By purchasing your Greens Share in advance, you are helping the fund our RAFT-P initiative and ensuring that the apprentice farmers have all of the support they need to learn while growing amongst long time landowners in the Pembroke Township community. You are actively funding this new generation who will lead the future of farming and Earth stewardship in our local, regional and national communities.

Come to an information session at the upcoming Healthy Food Hub beginning at 1 pm in order to learn more about how you can become an integral part of the Greens Share initiative.
