McIntosh S.E.E.D.

Transforming Communities By Transforming Lives

McIntosh SEED’s rural community development work begins with engagement, education and empowerment of community members. When scaffolded with opportunities for economic development that is locally-owned and locally controlled, along with infrastructure improvements, communities are becoming more resilient and self-sustaining.

Food, Farms, & Family

McIntosh S.E.E.D. utilizes a systemic approach to economic development that is locally owned, controlled, and re-invested into rural communities.

McIntosh SEED works to:

  • Assist families and farmers with putting under-utilized land into active production
  • Improve health and livelihoods of families
  • Connect intergenerational farmers in order to sustain farming knowledge and practices
  • Preserve the land and retain local ownership and control of farms and local systems

Our work will transform economic conditions and improve the health and livelihood of families.

Community Gardens

McIntosh SEED visited Appling County Farm in Baxley, Georgia in the fall to purchase Collards, Kale and Cabbage for the Community Gardens. They were distributed and planted in several different gardens in McIntosh and Liberty County, Georgia. In 7-9 weeks (just in time for the holidays), the plants were ready to be harvested. These gardens fed over 70 families in communities of various counties of Southeast Georgia.
