The Green Entrepreneurial Center
The Community Action Organization's Urban farm was created out of federal stimulus money to produce fresh healthy food, and create jobs for the people of Erie County.
So far, the GEC has helped develop eight farms in Erie County. These farms can grow almost any food crop that a rural farm can grow.
We are devoted to growing chemical free Fruits, Vegetables, Fish, Mushrooms, and herbs.
Our farms are helping to fight the war on poverty, by being able to operate in FOOD DESERT areas where no grocery stores exist; this allows people to acquire fresh chemical free foods without having to travel to distant grocery stores.
Our farms create training in agriculture, aquaculture, composting, business management, and marketing to allow people to run a business and create new jobs.
