Planting Seeds was founded by Dr. Nicole McCauley who grew up in a highly food insecure home. She was determined that her past would not define her future and created a way for children to learn how to grow their own food and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Planting Seeds gifts schools educational classroom Tower Gardens and self-sustainable Tower Farms, all through the use of grants. We believe every child should be empowered and offered the opportunity to eat nutritious foods.
Planting Seeds creates opportunities for small to medium sized NPOs to become self-sustainable using our tailored business plan. Each need and each farm is different and presents different challenges so a Tower Farm is placed by Planting Seeds certified farmers on location. These farmers educate the NPO staff and set them up for success with continued access to technology updates and support. The produce grown is eaten by the families in need and excess produce is sold within their community to fund the NPOs needs. Planting Seeds uses renewable energy sources wherever possible and can aid in obtaining clean water sources when needed.
