When we first met Melvin, we were blown away by his story and how he is using his life to build a stronger community.
Melvin comes to Cultivate almost every single day for coffee and to connect with our staff. We have come alongside him to share his vision to build a world class urban farm that also provide jobs and education using gardening/farming as the vehicle. We believe that storytelling is so vital that we hired a local videographer, Cody Martell to help him tell his story and raise funds for his future community site, We the People Opportunity Center. We are starting the year out with a social impact investment of $2,500 to his campaign.
