Joblessness. Food insecurity. Institutional violence created by scarcity. Disconnection from the land and nature. Nobody is coming to save us from these problems, so as communities we have to come together to solve them ourselves. Additionally, we are all seeing first hand how the triple threat of climate change, artificial intelligence, and threat of nuclear war are destabilizing our world. Whether it is on the global stage, at the community level, or in our homes, problems are multiplying and need is escalating. And unfortunately, historically disinvested neighborhoods, people of color, and immigrant communities are suffering the most.
Through Project Teach22, OurSpace World creates culturally-centered opportunities for the most vulnerable in our society to equip themselves with the knowledge and resources to navigate these challenging times. The goal of our Teach22 programs is to give folks the necessary hands-on skills to work with the land and with each other, to create vibrant, self-sustaining communities.
Project Teach22 (T22) is a family of programs that cooperatively empowers folks with skills and knowledge to prepare them for a 22nd-century reality. Knowledge and skills cultivated by Teach22 are rooted in small-scale, regenerative farming practices and ecological building skills for farm infrastructure and small affordable homes. Programs takes place at several outdoor classrooms ranging from backyard and school gardens to small-scale farms that OurSpace has helped to cultivate through its Ujima Initiative and Calabash work.
