We are Gracie's; an intricate system of pop-up farmer’s markets, virtual kitchens and alley gardens serving to bring money into the community by working with urban farmers, micro farmers and minority farmers to bring fresh produce to chefs, food business owners & private citizens
Users will also be able to find the funding needed to hire freelancer and full-time employees as well while also offering spaces to build publicly and to track progress for current and potential investors. Did we mention profit sharing and ability for anyone to contribute?
So far, we've won a grant from Initiatives of Change to change the narratives of how communities are viewed and operate. To be clear, this concept spawned from our original Gracie's concept which focuses on food and food access while this focuses on ALL aspects of community.
We want to create a scalable way to turn neighborhoods and their increasingly complex issues into startups to combat gentrification, systemic racism and premeditated exclusionary practices. We've got a lot of assumptions to (in)validate and little time to iterate. Should be fun?
