Justin and the team at Fleet Farming thought about it: If your cause is to create a more sustainable food system, doesn’t it make sense to fund it by growing food? Turning good intentions into revenue streams is what differentiates them from other food-related non-profits, and that is what led them to SPIN-Farming.
Now they are out generating buzz by building pedal-powered, urban farms to reactivate and re-engage communities across the US and create a bio-diverse environment through emissions-free, organic farming.
But what about paying those bills? Justin’s already servicing 6 restaurant clients, so he’s not letting any grass grow under his feet. Let’s see how to turn that into a sustainable business at our next Open House when we go through his SPIN plan by the numbers.
