  3. Develop entrepreneurial spirit in youth

  4. Encourage back-to-land mentality in youth

At-risk young men in the inner city of Birmingham present a key challenge to the community, economic, and social development. Most of these young men complain about the lack of opportunities in society and often claim they have nothing to do to occupy their time. These youth lack the practical knowledge agriculture and are unaware of the benefits agriculture can bring. Indeed, they need the necessary discipline which farming provides to one’s life. There is the need to channel the energies of these young men to productive and worthwhile endeavors.
