Mission Statement

To improve the quality of life of those around us by growing vegetables year round and selling them at low cost to urban families, employing local residents and teaching sustainability and earth science to young people.

Description

Community Greenhouse Partners is a sustainable urban farm that applies ecological design principles and engages community participation to grow wholesome food year-round that is provided at low-cost to the neighborhood, improving personal health while generating training, mentoring and employment opportunities.

The CGP Vision:

Our most valuable assets are our people and our customers.

Agriculture is the key to a sustainable future.

We reach out to our neighbors and help them by helping themselves.

We create a better future through education and training.

We respect the community and the environment.

We insist upon integrity and responsiveness in all our interactions with constituents.

In order to meet this mission CGP will develop programs that combine earth, food, employment, self-worth, education and opportunity into a replicable sustainable system that benefits both the individual as well as the community. These programs will be based on the following values:

A valued, sustainable community is one that integrates human capital into a balanced ecosystem.

Changes to the environment must be considered in context of their impact on the next seven generations.

Changing the dynamics of a community begins with opportunity and creating the tools to achieve it.

A healthy community is one that provides for the whole person.

Respect for the individual, community and the environment must be integrated into all our actions.

Our actions and accomplishments will be measured by our impact on the individual, the community and the environment.
