M:O/R/T Collective

MORT in field 2019

Mission:
Occupy (to settle down upon a place)
Reform: (to renovate/innovate/improve upon something, presumably for the better);
Transform (to become in/through a process something new).
Collective: A group of people dedicated to cooperating in pursuit of a common vision.

M:O/R/T Collective is an upstart social enterprise located inside Kansas City striving to foster ecological and cultural resiliency through community.

Located in the Historic Northeast neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri, farmers Chad Dykstra and Spencer Hess are committed to growth by working together and by helping their neighbors. They aim to grow healthy food and spread the know-how to do so in an urban setting. They believe that the time is right to rediscover the strength in relying on each other and not just on ourselves and impersonal social systems. Chad and Spencer are new to the Food Hub this year, and plan to grow and supply frisee, mesclun mix and microgreens. They grow without chemicals on a one-half acre urban lot.
