THE VISION CORE VALUES: Love, Respect, Stewardship, Diversity. Sowing Seeds of Change has a mission to empower our participants to discover and and actively engage in a local food system that encourages healthy living, nurtures the environment, and grows a sustainable community through vocational training, youth entrepreneurship, and leadership opportunities. Our primary objectives and vision are to employ transition-age people with disabilities and foster youth (ages 18-22) through a job-readiness program, grow organic produce, and host educational workshops for our neighboring community.
