Community is what we make it. Some ideas just need doing.
Community-based food systems provide a structure on which to build other local enterprises. We’re working with growers and distributors, farmers’ markets, restaurants, and consumers to tackle the root causes of hunger and malnutrition in Central Arkansas.
In an effort to promote healthier eating and community engagement, we’re helping Vestal develop a youth focused education facility that creates opportunities for students to participate in every aspect of the urban farming process.
Building a sustainable food system will take people working together. We're hoping the Co-op can help make that happen. In addition to providing access to tools, materials and training, we'll work with our members to form a common brand to promote local food in Central Arkansas.
We’re working with various members of the community to create a seasonal food guide for Central Arkansas growers. The guide will provide growing tips, local recipes, preservation methods, and information on farmers markets in the area.
The People Tree is a Central Arkansas non-profit focused on turning community ideas into community action. Founded the Fall of 2010, The People Tree works with various members of the community to promote societal systems that are economically, environmentally, and socially just. From strategic consulting and project management to funding and community engagement, we’re working tirelessly to make Central Arkansas a community of service and action.
