Led by founder Ryan Koch and assisted by an experienced CSA farmer, Seedleaf is working on multiple sites in Lexington, Kentucky. Seedleaf’s mission is to promote a local food system, work for nutritional justice, teach and model environmental stewardship, and preserve and develop interpersonal connections across barriers of race, age, and socioeconomic status by installing and maintaining community gardens.
