HOW WE GOT STARTED
Lettuce Live - Urban Farm Project began its work in 2012 while partnering with United Health Care and Wal-Mart in Memphis, Tennessee. The garden was just the beginning; our partnership created an opportunity for the community to start a small business selling herbs and vegetables at their local farmers market along with monthly cooking classes through our partnership with Le'Cole Culinaire, a culinary art school located in Memphis.
Our mission is to create more opportunities for people to grow their own food while ensuring under-served communities have access to fresh produce. Give us a call today, Lettuce create an edible green space for you.
