Urban Farming Sprouted by Recording Artist and Author-Taja Sevelle- an interview on Uncommon Giving
This episode is #55 of all time in the top 100 shows on Solutionz Live!
By the time Taja Sevelle was 17, she had lived in the city, on a farm and in a remote forest near the Canadian border with no running water, electricity or access by car. She had studied in her own science lab
complete with microscopes, slides, protozoa and data storage, she had
plowed fields, tapped maple trees, sang in several church choirs including gospel, and learned the Morse code.
Taja has songwriting and singing credits on over 2.5 million records sold including three CDs of her own, Prince, Johnny Mathis, the original soundtrack of the motion picture “Lean On Me” and numerous others.
In her upcoming book Garden Song, Sevelle shares the story of Urban Farming. The book portrays how Sevelle gives back to communities through the organization. She also describes her decision to put music on hold in order to nurture her philanthropic vision to its current success.
The Urban Farming™ mission is to create an abundance of food for people in need by supporting and encouraging the establishment of gardens on unused land and space while increasing diversity, raising awareness for health and wellness, and inspiring and educating youth, adults and seniors to create an economically sustainable system to uplift communities around the globe.
Through the creation of gardens, Sevelle is providing an abundance of food for communities around the world. The organization has over 59,000 registered gardens in more than 40 cities, and continues to grow along with each garden it plants.
