The UNIA-ACL BALTIMORE DIVISION 106 Barca-Clarke will be passing out information at the AFRICANS WITH EPILEPSY CONFERENCE AT BE MORE GREEN. Come out and get some great information detailing health in the black communities, including the UNIA Black Cross Nurses, and much more. Be More Green is an all-vegan business located in Baltimore, Maryland. The grocery store offers a free selection of produce to combat food insecurity. The free grocery model was founded by Dominic Nell. Dominic is affectionately known as “Farmer Nell”, and he created Be More Green to reduce food apartheid in USDA food deserts. Based on the international #TheFutureIsGreen movement that promotes a healthier community narrative. They specialize in processing fresh fruit directly from orchards and know exactly how to provide quality and healthy drinks. BE MORE GREEN is the social impact & innovation wing of CityWeeds.
CityWeeds is a trauma-informed food business that strives to eliminate food deserts and improve the health, wellness, and independence of Baltimore City residents through the growing and selling of microgreens and cold-pressed juices.
CityWeeds was also founded by Dominic “Farmer” Nell in 2016 after the tragic murder of Freddie Gray and the Baltimore Uprising. These events encouraged Farmer Nell to reflect on the distress faced by city residents and the healing needed in his West Baltimore neighborhood. Farmer Nell’s vision for CityWeeds is to feed and heal the community by growing food out of vacant lots.
The AFRICANS WITH EPILEPSY will be a great event. Feel free to come and invite family and friends.
