Dig Up Your Lawn

Think Local

We seek to promote a “Do-It-Yourself” mentality in individuals so that together we may begin to build sustainable communities in which we have control over our own lives.

Produce in the Projects is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit affinity group located on Long Island. We work to solve the problems associated with corporate control of our food supply, corporate and governmental manipulation of our farming system, and our general lack of autonomy as a people.

What gets planted?

This program is also geared toward beginner gardeners, so sticking to basics (tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, cucumbers, beans/peas, cabbage, spinach, lettuce, kale, some herbs/spices, melons, chili peppers, squash/gourds).

We try to avoid things like berries, fruit trees, artichokes, celery, cash crops, asparagus, corn, and other plants that may require a little bit more knowledge and skill.

Key fact:

"Over the last thirty years, we have witnessed a massive consolidation of our food system. Never have so few corporations been responsible for more of our food chain. Of the 40,000 food items in a typical U.S. grocery store, more than half are now brought to us by just 10 corporations. Today, three companies process more than 70 percent of all U.S. beef, Tyson, Cargill and JBS. More than 90 percent of soybean seeds and 80 percent of corn seeds used in the United States are sold by just one company: Monsanto. Four companies are responsible for up to 90 percent of the global trade in grain. And one in four food dollars is spent at Walmart.
"What does this matter for those of us who eat?..."
