Trustee: Central Arkansas New Agrarian Society (CANAS)
Little Rock, AR
Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
So that we may act as a conduit for growing our local food economy here in Central Arkansas. As a trustee of Kiva, we aim to connect enterprising folks with the funds they need to scale up food and goods production or simply repair a greenhouse.
What is the mission of your organization?
The Central Arkansas New Agrarian Society is a coalition of do-gooders, gardeners, and artisans that aims to cultivate urban agriculture in Central Arkansas by serving as a network of communication and cooperation. CANAS recognizes the fragile nature of the industrial food system and aims to address the needs of vulnerable populations with urban mini-farms like our Victory Garden Project. These farms will provide land access to surrounding residents as well as knowledge, tools, and resources that empower residents towards increased self-sufficiency. Ultimately, CANAS desires to instill in the community the beauty and necessity of a closed-loop, local, and democratic food system.
