About FFF

Our History

Germaine Jenkins (she/her/hers/they/theirs) founded Fresh Future Farm to address the health, wealth, and quality of life disparities in underserved North Charleston communities. Germaine, like many of the neighborhood's residents, struggled to access affordable, healthy and culturally relevant foods. She and all of the farm staff believe that everyone deserves to eat quality food. 

Born in Hartsville, SC and raised in Cleveland, OH, she returned to the Palmetto State and earned degrees in Baking & Pastry Arts and Food Service Management from Johnson & Wales University. After finishing college, they worked and volunteered in the nonprofit sector for the next 11 years. Ms. Jenkins completed Commercial Urban Agriculture certification from Growing Power Inc and won seed capital to start Fresh Future Farm.
