The Natural Environmental and Ecological Management Corporation (NEEM) of North Carolina (NC) promotes Sustainable Community Development. Organoponico NEEM is a 11.2 acre Farm Services Agency registered farm with farm serial number at three sites with a total of 18.4 acres available in Durham, North Carolina. The first registered Urban farm in NC. We are a Neem Tree based group but our focus is in the Sustainable Community in all respects. You cannot seek to provide a partial sustainable community; it is multi-faceted or “total community” approach that is required. While embracing Neem and Neem Tree by-products, we have wrapped ourselves around the total sustainable movement since 1994. “Sustainable” is now a buzz word; it has been a guiding principle for NEEM Corp. for 15+ years!
So, while we work in Urban Farm Systems using Neem we also work in water, energy, environment, Economic and residential green development or all aspects of the sustainable community. Our Urban Fram System is a food security, educational, healthy, organic and agricultural using the Cuban model. We are using the same composting system which is the heartbeat of the NEEM Urban Garden System. Neem by products and Vermicomposting (worm) are what separate us from most. The Neem applications are traditional with two of them developed by the Founder; Jeff Ensminger. Neem is used systemically and topically.We are a group dedicated to promoting Neem and use it as our anchor to improve our health, planet and its ecosystems. The organization will inform, educate, assist and create sustainable economies in local, regional, national and international markets. The Natural, Environmental and Ecological Management Corporation will consult in all phases to foster the awareness of Neem and Biological alternatives that perpetuate healthy ecological growth improving the environment, health and economies in a sustainable way.
We seek to accelerate research and product development, deliver health tools to people who need them, and build resources and political commitment for global health using existing natural and renewable resources.
Neem currently has USDA approval for use on food-stuffs as an alternative natural pesticide and fertilizer (Urban Farming). Neem is also approved for use in home health care products (ingested and topical).
Infrastructure for procurement of Neem and promotion of sustainable concepts is in place. Our source for Neem tree’s and Neem by-products is from producer’s under Fair Trade conditions. All relationships in the United States, Cuba and Kenya are in place and NEEM Corp. is working with Internationally known environmentalist, all luminaries in the sustainable market.
International commodities trade associations and processes are available.
We have established relationships and Associations in major production areas in India, Sub Sahara Africa, the Caribbean, Central America and Australia.
NEEM has established the NEEM Tree Project and the NEEM Urban Garden System with active projects in Durham, North Carolina, Rongo district of Kenya, Burkina Faso, Africa and New Mexico on the Navajo Reservation where NEEM is a consultant in rain water harvesting. NEEM Corp. will seek, through a general fund, to assist in provision of funding for extraction equipment, Neem trees, ramp-up of an urban garden system, and consult in community sustainable development in economically distressed countries where Neem grows but funding assistance is required. Creating new markets ensures additional supply and promotes self-reliance. Economic stimulus is created where it is desperately needed while enhancing our own ecological profile.
Neem grows on the equatorial belt and is not indigenous to or suitable to grow in the United States (in sufficient quantities).We therefore trade where Neem is prolific. In so doing, we support sustainable economic growth. Outsourcing is not a bad thing when there is no viable alternative.
While others talk about Peak Oil, NEEM talks about Peak Water and Food Security using biological alternatives to cemical inputs. Aquifer management is the key and replacing what we take from the ground is necessary. As long as we do that we will have water to grow food.
