The Deeper Roots program will work within the non-profit Abundant Earth Foundation’s (AEF) ecosystem to transform our barren landscapes into thriving communities through training primarily youth and women in regenerative food production worldwide. This program will provide the infrastructure needed to transition from ideas to functioning food systems and financial independence as teachers with living wages and support for participants to establish micro-enterprises.
The REAP Center supports healthy soil and the movement transitioning tillage and monoculture land to permaculture practices. From community building to education, to science and technology measuring biodiversity in the soil and its ability to capture carbon. All the way to supporting policy and financial models that aid in this transition. By opening at least one REAP Center in every state, we can effect change at scale as regional hubs for training and distributing resources. Our initial demonstration site is coming to life on 4 acres in Alameda, California. It consists of a community farm, a soil program, an edible community park, and an arts & science collective where we can incubate and accelerate emergent technologies addressing soil challenges.
Seaworthy Collective empowers a community of current and aspiring entrepreneurs to innovate for regenerative ocean impact. We have built a network of over 20 different mentors and collaborators, spanning diverse industries and communities in Miami, Florida.
