The GrowUS Initiative is a collective of Anaheim High School Teachers, NOCROP Instructors, and Anaheim High School students who are dedicated to developing, planning, and executing a vertical farm system(s) on our High School Campus, in the hopes of improving school meals, feeding the communities around the school, and educating students of the future of agriculture, and our impact that food systems have on the planet.

|We would like to stress that a supply-chain-based approach is essential. This is why Dutch dairy farmers have partnered with Royal FrieslandCampina, the World Wide Fund for Nature and Rabobank. In order to improve overall engagement levels, the Duurzame Zuivelketen (Sustainable Dairy Supply Chain) and the Versnellingsagenda Melkveehouderij (Dairy Farming Acceleration Project) are also affiliated with this initiative. Our goal is to encourage other supply-chain partners and stakeholders to also start using the Biodiversity Monitor for the Dairy Farming Sector in the future. This type of partnership will enable the Biodiversity Monitor for the Dairy Farming Sector to become an independent standard. The tool will serve as a driving force and set in motion a trend that will improve both the biodiversity of Dutch soil and farming practices employed by Dutch farmers.|

The intended green revolution for global food security, since 1960s, was never ever green! On the contrary, there was no favorable food security nor safe food, but become an existential security threat to humanity with catastrophic ecocide destructions.
There has never been a greater need for an Agricultural Renaissance. The many voices of farmers, echoing across centuries of scarcity and abundance, challenge us to find new ways forward, paths that produce abundance for expanding populations while rejecting wasteful destruction of resources. We must seek these new ways to collaborate and innovate together.
Faced with a matter of years to protect, sustainably manage, and restore our landscapes that support food systems, we urgently need to make the right decisions supported by transparent, accessible, accurate, and credible data.
Nature is the best healer of nature. We all are nature’s creation. Nature has sufficient food and water for nature and nature’s creation. Misuse and bad use is the cause of the crisis.
