“ALL FOOD THAT’S FIT TO EAT”™ Since 1996
”NEEM™ as an organization uses Agroecological techniques in sustainable agriculture and community development. Formed in 1974 as an environmental group in Mystic, CT, we became NEEM as an activist organization in 1996, 2009 and formally in 2014. We operate NEEM projects, foreign exchange programs and our 11.2 acre Organoponicos NEEM in Durham, North Carolina. NEEM replicates the Cuban model. We take Agroecological approaches to “Food Security” and sustainable community. Both should be harmonious with their natural surroundings. True to our roots we promote Urban sustainable agriculture as an honorable profession and a viable alternative to sustainable economies (jobs) and the inextricable link to health, nutrition, a healthy environment, ecological farming and the cooperative model; all as fulcrums to sustainable community. We sustainably produce for those socioeconomically excluded from organic. We support various market systems that help farms, but our client is the low income community where we are located.
The neem tree inspired NEEM as an organization. Neem, the tree of a thousand and one uses, the village pharmacy; a natural solution to global problems. Neem – a yearly harvest able and reliable alternative with no adverse affects to the planet, body or mind. The cultivar that reminds you that there are biological alternatives to chemical inputs. Neem is a statement. It tells us that we can become self-sufficient by relying on existing natural resources that benefit the planet and ensure food safety.
NEEM seeks to effect positive change, promote the numerous uses of “Neem Tree” by-products, and the philosophy of Agroecology as catalyst to understanding natural methods in the urban and rural environment; all are fulcrums to sustainable community development. The existence of neem says to us that new technology is dangerous (GMO) and a threat to the food chain. Neem says no to Monsanto and groups that support disruption of nature and people through introduction of unnatural systems designed to profit off of people rather than people profit from the earth.
A gift to NEEM is a gift to your community.
NEEM is a start up 501(c)3 (pending) non-profit corporation with methods of operation that have the purpose of affecting public/private sector policies that impact human health, the environment, and community through promotion of urban farming, education in sustainable and Agroecological concepts with effective, biological alternatives to chemical inputs and the farm as the fulcrum to sustainable community development.
