The seeder is the most patient and repetitive practice that we do. It requires precision and deligence, but the rewards are amazing!

As the seeder supporter, I will interact with you, my Patreons, with private videos and think of fun ideas to interact with.

    As the organic fertilizer in the farm, you are the nutrient that keeps on giving. We use organic fertilizer everytime we seed, or turn up the bed to prepare it for replanting.

      You are the best! turning compost is one of the most vital roles in the farm. Not only are you airating our production, you help with the 'compost cooking' to make it ready for farm use.

      • This will be coffee chat, Q&A style. My goal is to do a chat every quarter.  Sometimes I might do 2, sometimes I might not be able to do one.  I reserve the right to have a kombucha with me during the chat.
      • I also intend to occasionally consult you for things like Titles for the next video, suggestions for infographics, etc.

        About Jessey Urban Farmer of Zawadi Farm

        Hey, thanks for stopping by, I'm Jessey and for the past 5 growing seasons, I've been growing seasonal produce in this city on backyards and other urban growing spaces that we get access to. 

        I'm on a mission to grow farmers and somehow, find the craziest idea to end poverty.

        The produce we grow goes to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm share members who have paid for them ahead of time. Any extra produce that we harvest, goes to subsidize our local market in our local low-income community.

        As you've made it here, I know you understand how crazy this idea is and the challenges that exist in growing food in the city.

        WHY Supporting this page allows me to get my videos ready quickly and more frequently. It also allows me to find time during my growing season (which is crazy) to put the content together, edit, animate and publish.

        HOW You can tailor your subscription as you see fit, I'm content even with $1, you'll be able to keep up with the videos as they are released.

        WHAT As you might have guessed, yes, this is my fulltime gig - I spend 8 months of the growing season working in the urban plots, growing food and sending it out to my members and those who can have it. Any extra support will allow me to invest in equipment, information graphics, animations, travel and meet with and learn from other farmers, also, invest in my kids' future paths. It'll be made to good use!

        I am blown away that you are even here, humbled that you are willing to join my crazy journey and listen to my crazy ideas. As much as they are insane, they are my goals are to realize each and every one of those ideas, is why I wake up early with a smile on my face.

        Thank you, and thank you again!
