Sarah commented on The WE Farm - a food system vision for 2050

Hi Vincent - Thanks for reaching out. We believe that through education on regenerative farming and our WE farms the act of nurturing and caring - farming - will become as common as riding a bicycle. People will see not only the nutritious benefits but the health benefits of spending an hour or two a day caring for their food production. Instead of paying $ for a fitness membership they will be much healthier and save $ on their food bill. Farming is something that anyone can do and feel a sense of accomplishment in the act of doing it. So the goal is to offer courses and community events to those living in the city, to pull them out to experience what it is like to farm - the smell of the earth, the confidence and success that comes when something you do causes something to grow. As well as the experience of sharing in learning that our workshops will provide. We will offer shared farm space at WE farm, but we also hope they go back to the city and work with our partners with community gardens.
We are currently looking at creating a "proof of concept" We Farm to create an efficient and syntropic process for it. And from there we hope to roll them out across North America and the Caribbean.
