The Six Pillars
of the 10th element
Plant Based Eating
We introduce youth and their parents to people and businesses that are either preparing plant-based food or are manufacturing, distributing, and selling organic products in their area. We teach the importance of plant-based eating for our health and for the environment. We share how to cook and prepare plant-based recipes; where food comes from; how it is processed, marketed and distributed into their community.
We teach youth to grow food at Cherry ST. Farm. We encourage people to get excited about gardening and learn about growing food in a variety of environments. We offer tips and resources for starting and maintaining an urban farm, including information on water, soil, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.
Our fitness program promotes physical fitness as essential for overall health and well-being. We offer resources and support for people looking to improve their physical fitness and knowledge of their bodies.
Sobriety & Mental Health
We support people struggling with addiction and work to promote sobriety in Hip Hop culture. We provide resources and referral to licensed professionals for drug and alcohol treatment, as well as sharing our own personal experiences with addiction and sobriety.
