Microgreens - Offer potential distribution of City Weeds’ microgreens, with favorable economics and a willingness to accept micros from varying branded producers; this would support jobs/income for the neighborhood beyond farmers’ markets.
Prepared Food - Once the kitchen is open we can begin to set up a social enterprise where we can start to produce food that can be sold to local corner stores and business partners. Profit would go back into funding The Food Project.
