The Aims and Values of our organization
SomethingBigger is committed to working with communities by being the neighborhood source for educational activities and participation in urban-farming. We aim to unite our community through education on the growing of food, conservation, preservation and restoring our natural ecosystem on a local level. By incentivizing new and creative approaches to our environment and lifestyle, we are able to improve overall quality of life.
By having a facility "next-door" in dense residential areas, we are ensuring that kids and families have a place to go and a place to grow.
Raising awareness has been a key element in how an individual maneuvers in the world.
Creating a space in communities where people are able to touch, see, feel and experience projects related to the food that we eat,
the animals we love, the trees giving us shade, the hens that give us eggs, enhances better understanding of the history, culture
and roots of our neighborhoods.
SomethingBigger has been created for all of us.
