Life Yard is the first eco-village in the city of Kingston, Jamaica. A social enterprise and community based organization, creating changes through art, agriculture and academics.
- “Eat what you grow” – plant healthy produce, which can provide nutrition for the community which houses them.
- “Use what you have” –Teach the community how to re-use and re-purpose, ideally to create new income streams.
- “Clean up and beautify” – Teach the importance of keeping the communities clean. Create more aesthetically appealing environments.
- “Expand your mind” – Provide tools that can harness innate (or natural) talent within some of Jamaica’s most underserved communities. Education through exposure to new ideas. We strive to connect formally trained artists, artisans, entrepreneurs, business developers to move community-driven ideas, products and services to a marketable and sustainable scale.
