Food can unite people – Urban farming guys

I just have to share this with you guys!
There is so much going on in the world right now and I keep reading and watching more and more about what is bad for us, GMO, sugar is bad, fat is bad and so on. But I have also noticed an upcoming rivalry (if it’s possible to call it that) all over the world. People taking a stand and making a change to change their environment and help not only themselves but others get out of tough situations and bad habits.

These guys from Urban Farming guys are amazing!
They went from having nothing but an idea. Taking the idea with no money and a vision to being one of the most successful feel-good stories of probably our times.

This is what they say about their mission on their website.

The Urban Farming Guys non profit (501c3) mission is to establish sustainable communities in the most difficult and overlooked places on earth.  It begins with local food and water security, alternative energy, and local economic resilience. We are running hard to put the most innovative, accessible, low tech and reproducible solutions for self-sustaining community into the hands of everyday people from the inner-cities to the nations in a way that is caught and spread on a local level. Together we are beating a path for communities and villages to THRIVE in any economy.  We are putting them to the test in the hostile environment of the inner city of Kansas City’s Lykins Neighborhood at our U.S. base of operations.  Champions are being raised as we entrust these opportunities to our inner-city youth. We aim to intercept and reshape the path of the next generation. And lastly we are multiplying our efforts by putting videos, diagrams, principals, parts lists and full technologies into your hands in an open source knowledge base to make these tools reproducible around the world. Simultaneously we are working in both Mexico and extreme east India by building an off grid fish farm at orphanages in both places. We will soon return to build a bio-gas system to provide cooking fuel and electricity.  UFG works to empower indigenous groups. Partnering to build economic forces from the inside out, creating jobs, building resilient communities with affordable healthy food access, and to establishing alternative water and energy solutions that ultimately preserve life in many geographic situations. This work deeply depends on your support to make a global impact. We urge you to help us equip the next generation to thrive

Check out the inspirational video below and their website, it is truly inspirational and I wish more of us out there would follow their example.
