Mission Statement


ECO seeks to reverse the effects of systemic poverty, racism, and environmental destruction through establishing and promoting social venture community-based businesses. Our mission is to involve people from all walks of life in healthy and sustainable living activities.

Description


With the generous support of Prince George’s County, The Maryland – National Capital Park and Planning Commission and Kaiser Permanente, our new Offshoot Farm Network will produce sustainably grown vegetables, fish, honey, and mushrooms through interdependent and intensive urban farming in Edmonston, MD. In our agricultural model, replicating a healthy ecosystem, waste streams are converted into inputs and used multiple times to produce multiple products. This is the case with our compost, vegetable, and aquaponic systems.
