growing food. growing jobs. growing friendship
freedom farms began as way to engage alongside students to help them use the assets that already existed within our community to end our “food desert.” we began with school gardens, graduated to community gardening & now are putting up an aquaponic greenhouse to serve as a wholesale production facility that allows youth an employment opportunity in partnership with Langston university!
THE THREE PARTS OF “FREEDOM FARMS”
Mission Summary of Freedom Farms
It is our intention:
to love our neighbor well through service and education (teaching God’s heart for work, working as an act of worship, stewarding the earth, caring for and investing in the next generation of the community, basic business and entrepreneurial skills) in order to equip our next generation of youth to serve their communities.
to grow food organically in order to provide food within our food-desert community;
to provide a place of beauty, rest, plenty and a safe place for members of our community to experience joy, justice, generosity, and friendship.
