Eugene Cooke, urban farmer, has been helping people to grow their own food in public and private spaces for well over a decade. His mission is to help communities exercise their right to grow, sell and eat healthy foods which lead to practices that create a strong local food system, self-reliant communities and a healthy environment.
Eugene’s clients for edible garden consultations include Will Smith, Keenan Ivory Wayans, stic.man from Dead Prez and singer N’dea Davenport from Brand New Heavies. Eugene has given lectures at places like Morehouse and Spelman College, Tuskeegee Institute and traveled to Kenya, Tanzania and Jamaica. He’ll make a stop to speak in Los Angeles at Crenshaw Yoga & Dance before traveling to Haiti with League of Hope to assist with developing growing systems.
