Our mission is to help Jamaica reduce its food imports, increase exports, create jobs, agri-entrepreneurship opportunities and help reduce crime and poverty by putting idle hands to idle lands. We achieve this by educating youth and distressed farmers in the best-practices of Organic Climate-Smart Agriculture. Transitioning them from schools into partnerships with local farmers and diaspora landowners. Creating agri-entrepreneurship by guaranteeing markets for them to sell to, while keeping them constructively occupied in their newfound craft. The long-term effect will create micro-economies island-wide which will have macro effects for the country.

600 doTERRA volunteers and Farm-Up Jamaica, an organization that works to teach students the art of farming to grow quality ginger, partner to help plant a Jamaican ginger field.
