Organic Food for the People (OFFTP) is an urban garden project striving to offer organic food to the people who don’t have access to affordable organic produce. Through the development of this community garden, artists, activists and healers are coming together to grow and harvest organic foods in the garden, as well as provide a host of resources to holistically address the needs of the neighborhood. OFFTP offers food education, as well as workshops on gardening, health/nutrition, cooking and art.
The Tehuti Ma’at Association was founded by Priscilla Amado and Preston Roundtree to provide educational resources to inner city neighborhoods. We began this OFFTP community garden project as a holistic solution to the health issues plaguing the people in our neighborhoods. It is also a method of community organizing, empowerment and beautification. This effort grew from the desire expressed by people at our community discussions to be able to provide basic day to day needs within the community. This is a movement for self-determination!
