ThePLOT.us– provides us with a network of spaces that allow for civic dialogue, recreation, horticulture and socialization for the individual & corporate public good. By building better community relations we can educate our neighbors, provide locally grown food and produce to the community while helping to feed the food insecure. Biodiversity within urban land use development is essential for a sustainable and resilient population to thrive in its environment. This means the incorporation of more productive green space, such as community gardens, micro-farms, and rooftop gardens are necessary to meet the immediate needs of its people. For example, recent global and national studies have shown an increase in the need of affordable and nutritious foods in low-income, urban and rural areas known as food deserts. We’re growing towards an understanding of ecological interdependence, yet we still need insights from one another about our developing world so that we may work in concert with each other.
Create a network of informed and connected agricultural communities through healthy civic dialogue that encourages consumption of locally produced food, equips others with the knowledge and skills to grow and entrusts a spirit of sustainable food production to future generations.
Provide local produce and nutritious whole foods to the community and food insecure.
Educate community members on how to cultivate, produce and maintain their own healthy food source.
