From The Ground Up Farms, located in Chico, California, is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 after realizing how critical good nutrition, organic food and access to education was. We realized that our community has a serious food security issue. We don’t believe healthy organically grown food should be a luxury only the wealthy can afford. A group of local farmers, educators, artists and activists have come together to establish an organization dedicated to bridging the nutritional gap through Life Skills education and community gardening. Our organization’s mission is to heal our community by feeding them healthy nutritious food and teaching them how to grow their own. The food we grow is distributed at no cost to our community. We educate them by offering free nutrition education, cooking, gardening and various Life Skills workshops, which will all lead to self-reliance and food security. We believe that proper nutrition and education can change the lives in our community for the better by offering an opportunity to learn self sufficiency, responsibility, gain a sense of achievement, improve physical and mental health, and to grow in confidence and self-respect.
