NEXT-GENERATION FARMERS PROJECT
Our farm is looking to shake up the Agricultural Landscape of Hemp Farming.
Green Rush Organic Farms is bringing its Next-Gen Farmers Training Project to Chicago’s westside, North Lawndale area. The goal of this project is to train the community in indoor urban farming and the many benefits of growing industrial hemp, sustainable hemp food products, fiber, biomass, and CBD year-round in technology-driven environments.
There will be lecturers who will talk about hemp farming, securing new farm start-up capital and entrepreneurship. The program will consist of workshops, which cover a variety of topics, such as pest management practices by our industry leading pest management partners, Chicago Pests, LLC, to real food entrepreneurship frameworks.
The project enables Next-Gen farmers to study the molecular level of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa L. They will be able to obtain hands-on experience with the business side of farming so that they can pursue a start-up indoor urban farm and get involved economically in the communities where they reside.
Additionally, our Next-Gen farmers will have opportunities to represent Green Rush Organic Farms at community events and marketing activities, where farmers can connect directly with customers at these customer-focused engagements.
Our farm will partner with a leading organic food distributor to distribute food that is grown by community farmers enrolled in our Next-Gen Farmers training project to local consumers and retailers, and consumers and retailers across the country.
Green Rush Organic Farms end goal is to be a pathway for future farmers in the hemp urban farming industry in cities across the country, and globally to start building their own “HEMPIRES”.
