Peace and greetings! The Calabash Collective funnels resources to emerging and existing communities through fiscal sponsorship, technical assistance, and partnerships. The Collective has provided close to $300,000 to mission-aligned groups for projects ranging from land purchase to farm infrastructure support. Through the Collective, OurSpace World also offers fiscal sponsorship, consulting services and technical assistance to mission-aligned organizations and individuals. The Collective also develops regional partnerships to attract funding and creates new initiatives that further OurSpace’s mission.
Is the Calabash Collective for you?
Yes! Many Black farmers/growers and food producers lack technical assistance support to launch or expand their farm/food business operations. There is also a lack of access to support. Lastly, there are limited learning opportunities for emerging and experienced consultants to obtain the knowledge and skillsets necessary to assist various farmer/grower and food producer needs.
Through the Collective, OurSpace World offers a one-stop shop for technical assistance, teaching, learning, networking and fiscal sponsorship for Black and Brown farmers/growers, food producers and consultants.
