I am the Founder of the Elect Leadership Academy Foundation. We use farming as a teaching method for preservation of land in professional development classes and for youth programs. It is our vision to prepare the next generation in the importance of cultivating and preserving land for vegetation and healthy animals which all produce healthy humans. There is a profound amount of life lessons in farming. We love to use farming and food for professional development projects. Thus far food and urban farming have helped ELA to provide a way to collaborate with urban initiatives.
