Samen werken aan de toekomst
van landbouw, voedsel, water,
energie, biodiversiteit en educatie.



In het huidige landbouw- en voedselsysteem investeren we jaarlijks miljarden, en tóch gaat het achteruit met biodiversiteit, bodemkwaliteit, de vitaliteit van voedsel, water en ons landschap en het aantal boeren.

Het doel is systeemverandering. Hier gaan we aan werken doorleren te combineren met het ontwikkelen van verschillende innovatieve initiatieven. Er is al voldoende kennis, kapitaal en kunde aanwezig. Door deze te verbinden en te benutten werken we aan de oogst van morgen.
We betrekken alle relevante sectoren; educatie, financiën, gezondheids-zorg, energie etc.

“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need is a seed.”



Shabazz had to extend the garden to her front lawn but even then, it wasn’t enough to feed all who wanted to be involved. With neighbors January Blum and Lucas Dupont, Shabazz found a large vacant lot on Main Street and secured it as a farming cooperative. Word about Project Sprout spread throughout Kent County, so the team was invited to help start other community gardens.

Our Mission

Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.

Get Involved

If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
