From Urban Farming Programs to Youthful Entrepreneurship

By: Social Business Editor - May 27, 2014
From urban farming programs to youthful entrepreneurship endeavors, horticultural social enterprises meld diverse agriculture initiatives with a social mission. It is a term that the Social Business editorial team first learned from a recent YouTube video featuring Cultivate London's General Manager, Adrienne Attorp, but it can be used widely.

As city's become more and more condensed and gentrified, there will be more need and desire to create alternative communities that also produce healthy fruit and vegetables. Flowers are also an important part of being on this planet and they are something that these horticultural social enterprises take quite seriously. Whether you like to get your hands dirty in the garden yourself or you simply appreciate a fresh herb, the goal here is to simply live a greener life -- and that means supporting programs that help to create positive social change.
