Change Comes to Dinner: How Urban Farmers Are Changing Our Cities

Change Comes to Dinner: How Urban Farmers Are Changing Our Cities | Yellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism | Scoop.it
'Change Comes to Dinner: How Urban Farmers Are Changing Our Cities' blog post by Guest Contributors.

As city dwellers across the U.S. develop an interest in fresher, more local, and more sustainable food, innovative methods of producing food in urban areas multiply. These enterprises take all forms, from nonprofit urban gardening programs serving low-income residents; to massive farm businesses restoring blighted city blocks; to high-tech aquaculture companies producing food on rooftops.

There are thousands of urban-ag projects of many kinds blooming in towns and cities all across the country and serving a variety of nutritional and social needs.

Organizations like City Slicker Farms in West Oakland, California, demonstrate the potential of urban agriculture to help correct an imbalance that has developed in many cities — that of fresh food’s availability in wealthier neighborhoods and relative paucity in inner-cities.

http://www.cityslickerfarms.org/

 

The organization maintains seven community market farms totaling less than an acre, which collectively produce 7,000 pounds of food a year to be sold at a central market stand to West Oaklanders at risk of food insecurity and malnutrition.

http://www.indiegogo.com/bigloveforbriggyhall?c=comments&a=519136

 A great organization run for great people for great causes – developing self supporting enterprises that improve the health and livelihood of their community.

Our Story & Impact

The name ‘Briggy Hall’ was derived from the Filipino word barangay, which means a small community. The concept builds on the Filipino value of bayanihan, referring to the spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective. Launched last November 25, 2011, Briggy Hall is a community-based social business model that helps start up food entrepreneurs launch their passions by providing them with a 5-point promise of Booth, Buddies, Brains, Biz and Buck:

• Booth: Stall space in the community cafe at a friendly rental rate.
• Buddies: Foot traffic of food enthusiasts to support new food ideas.
• Brains: Educational videos and seminars featuring successful Filipino food entrepreneurs.
• Biz: Business support such as special startup rates from suppliers.
• Buck: Revolving fund to be loaned to aspiring entrepreneurs in the marginalized sector.

The brainchild of the corporate social responsibility advocate Ivanna Aguiling, the 100-square-metre food hall serves as an incubation space for budding food entrepreneurs to test their scrumptious creations. Briggy Hall aims to help launch 48 food businesses every year with the belief that creating more businesses can help increase a family’s income and provide more employment opportunities.

Since its inception, Briggy Hall has helped launch 5 businesses in the market, which includes Milky and Sunny, Sarap 88, Eleanor’s Kitchen, Tokwa’t Boboy, FILI (Food from Home) and Chuck's Wagon. The food haven in East Capitol Drive, Barangay Kapitolyo, Pasig City is also home to Filipino made organic products like muscovado sugar, golden egg (organic version of salted egg, coloured with ginger), shade-grown coffee and cacao (a dark chocolate).

Briggy Hall is not just about satisfying the hungry tummy; it is about providing micro-enterprise opportunities for the marginalized sector.

What Briggy Needs

We at Briggy Hall need support to reach our goals of helping and providing opportunities for startup entrepreneurs. We need funds to deliver our 5-point promise of providing booths (store space), buddies (marketing for highest food traffic), brains (educational videos and seminars), biz (closing partnership deals for startup entreps) and buck (revolving fund for startup entreps in the marginalized sector).

Thus, we would like to ask for your help as we raise $2,200 in 45 days. Your contributions will be part of a greater investment that aims to promote entrepreneurship as a means of livelihood for those in the lower socio-economic classes. With a minimum donation of $10, even YOU can help fuel someone's dream of creating good, delicious and quality food.

Take a Tip From Singapore: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well

Take a Tip From Singapore: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well | Yellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism | Scoop.it
What can American businesses learn from Singapore's open-air markets?

Singapore's humble hawker centers—open-air markets filled with food stalls, each one specializing in a particular dish or cuisine—produce what is arguably the tastiest (and cheapest) food in the country. And according to The Layover host and frequent Singapore visitor Anthony Bourdain, American entrepreneurs would be wise to study their business model.

"Food courts in America are bad things—owned by no one, with food that comes from nowhere," Bourdain said at a recent media lunch in New York City, sponsored by the Singapore Tourism Board. He contrasted chain-heavy U.S. food court denizens with the Singaporean version: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well, whether it's laksa, nasi goreng, satay, or ice kachang. The stalls are tightly regulated, subsidized, and have relatively low overhead costs, which make it possible for small business owners to thrive.

"This is an example to emulate and a paradise to me," says Bourdain. "Imagine knocking off for lunch and choosing from 20 or 30 specialists for cheap, healthy, real fast food, which even at its worst, is far better than the options we have here."

Jacinto & Lirio / Human Nature Using indigenous materials for stylish and sustainable bags

Jacinto & Lirio / Human Nature Using indigenous materials for stylish and sustainable bags | Yellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism | Scoop.it
Using indigenous materials for stylish and sustainable bags, this social enterprise delights the customer while empowering the community.

by Noreen Bautista, Co-founder and CEO of Jacinto & Lirio

http://www.JacintoandLirio.com

https://www.facebook.com/JacintoandLirio

https://twitter.com/#!/jacintoandlirio

http://jacintoandlirio.tumblr.com/

 

Our name is Spanish for "Hyacinth and Lily" because what propelled our existence was the water hyacinth, or "water lily". Our first collection was a collaboration with the world-famous Filipino bag designer, Cora Jacobs who herself had a strong vision to merge fashion and nation building. This project got us involved with Gawad Kalinga Center for Social Innovation and the women from the Cora Cares Foundation which seeks to uplift women's lives through world class bagmaking.

Our story. Back in 2009, we met innovators who introduced what they called water hyacinth leather -- the plant's stalks turned into a leather-like material. It's inspiring to know that we can create amazing Filipino innovations and we were driven to show these products to the world.

Our mission. It goes beyond the world of fashion. We are the flagship of the social enterprise EcoIngenuity Inc., which aims to raise the competitiveness of indigenous materials and the communities that produce them through global design brands. Many of these communities still live in poverty, and we believe by creating this market vehicle, we are empowering them with development opportunities and helping build our nation.

Amidst hard times for greentech, digital green startups emerge ... | Yellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism | Scoop.it
Young, early-stage green-focused startups are a rare breed these days. The demo day on Wednesday in downtown San Francisco for the green digital-focused accelerator Greenstart (which I called the Y-Combinator for greentech a year ago when they launched) was one of the first times in a long time that I’ve seen a grouping of new young green-leaning startups looking for their first round of funding.
At the event at the Greenstart offices, five startups focused on using software to change energy and transportation, showed off their ideas to a packed house of hundreds of investors, potential partners and the media. The startups seemed as excited to present their ideas as the investors were to hear their pitches.

Chairman of GK Australia and keynote speaker of the day, Mr Andrew Chalk, discussed the essence of GK as “building change within the individual, not just the community,” and the ongoing importance of transforming localities by establishing leaders within them.

Perhaps the most important part of the 2012 GK Harvest was to see the actions of everyone making a difference. There is still some way to go but the momentum of ending poverty for five million poor families by 2024 is gaining traction. Andrew Chalk summarised the general feeling in the room best by stating, “I can’t think of anything else more important in this world.”
