ALMA’s Social Enterprise grows and distributes organic, whole foods within food-insecure communities. Fresh food is made available to community members and to restaurant partners.
Why We Do It
ALMA reconnects the lives of the formerly incarcerated back to the fabric of society.
Our participants have the chance at attaining gainful employment and becoming self-sufficient.
Urban Farming helps everyone involved explore the relationships between plants, animals and
humans as a way of creating a profound connection to both nature and their community.
"Farming brings me peace. I haven't had peace like this before."
