We address health, wealth, and quality of life issues through radical work.
The Farm offers grocery services, farm training, micro-entrepreneurship support, and online education and agritourism events
The Farm serves Chicora/Cherokee, one of eleven neighborhoods experiencing food apartheid in the city of North Charleston.
Disinvestment has created underserved spaces that lack:
traditional grocery stores
Additionally, the southern end of the city:
is overrun with hazardous industrial zones
suffers from the highest eviction rate in the US.
We hire from the community and pay our employees livable wages.
