Good Life Growing

We are a social enterprise focused on combating urban decay and food insecurity.

“Good Life converts vacant, blighted land into production as a micro-farm. We work with and hire from the communities we operate in, and only use sustainable growing techniques.

We started in earnest to combat urban decay and food insecurity, and to create a local healthy food system and living wage jobs. We became hyper passionate about this effort the more we immersed ourselves in the North St. Louis City community and saw first hand the need for healthy food as medicine and an alternative to crime and low wage service jobs.”
