Help us, Help Families


We work with local and national families, communities, organizations, to help educate families to grow their own food, feed their own families and build urban neighborhoods through urban farm productivity. We teach people how to live with, grow, manage, house, process, market, sell-sometimes even cook and eat fresh, clean food within cities, suburbs and small towns in the United States.

 

We have two locations:

The Genesis Agriculture Farm is located at: 8251 West 145th Place, Orland Park, IL 60462 and our downtown location is at: 833 West Chicago Avenue, Unit 216 Chicago IL, 60642.

why we do it

 

Genesis Agriculture (GA) is a certified 501C3 founded by Leo Frontera. Other founding board members include Howard Weitzman, Alvin Boutte and Bob Pontarelli.

 

 
 

We educate communities in food.

We teach people how to live with, grow, manage, house, process, market, sell-sometimes even cook and eat fresh, clean food within cities, suburbs and small towns in the United States.

We work with existing communities, organizations, local businesses and governments to educate local populations in food both as a sacred human interaction with nature itself as well as a business opportunity.

We are partnering with businesses and other not-for-profits, communities, groups and organizations to alert and educate the public in the importance of not only growing our own food but in raising a new generation of urban population in the food business in general.

 

 

Growing for the future...

 

We believe the future of freedom is in food. We are out to educate urban populations in not only the value of food as the source of vibrant health but also as a source of new community and new commerce-the ultimate in clean commerce. We see producing food locally, abundantly and in-community as an essential foundation of what it means to be self-reliant, self-sufficient and resilient in the face of rapid change©.

We believe in decentralized technologies, supported by local populations, as bulwarks against catastrophic anything, from climate to economy to societal change.
