Urban agriculture is a tool for economic development and a way to cultivate community, especially for those without adequate resources and who experience barriers to accessing fresh and healthy local foods. HABESHA focuses on providing new skills and professional training and education in sustainable agriculture to young adults while also developing a community-based approach to individuals with health disparities. Establishing an economic development model that creates affordable social entrepreneurship opportunities is essential for the communities that HABESHA hopes to nurture. Come listen to Charles Greenlea speak about HABESHA's training programs and partnerships with the Nature Conservancy, Georgia Food Oasis, and Stelman College. Learn how these hands-on training programs are relevant to HABESHA’s Pan-African organization focused on cultivating leadership through practical and cultural education.
