Timothy Smith

Term:

Since July 2010

Profile:

CGP founder Timothy Smith first learned of the Milwaukee-based food program "Growing Power" while watching the film "Fresh" in 2008, but he was no stranger to local food movement. In creating the CGP, Smith will be fulfilling a life-long endeavor: to form a business that positively impacts the community around him. His passion for healthy, local food was born at an early age when he began raising vegetables with his family; a practice that they continue to this day. Smith spent nearly 20 years in the food service industry, cooking and managing at a number of high-end and chain restaurants, where he learned the importance of using the freshest ingredients possible. In addition, as a life-long diabetic, he understood the devastating effects that obesity and poor diet can have on one's body, particularly for children. Subsequently, his experience as a volunteer coordinator, special events manager, journalist, graphic design business owner and political activist givers knowledge, experience base, and proven passion that is needed to see this venture through to fruition.

Leadership Statement:

Nothing like this currently exists in Cleveland. All other urban agribusiness in Cleveland is ground-based, with late spring, summer and fall production only. We will be the first in the area to grow a full range of vegetables using organic methods year round. We will also be the first large-scale, high-yield, commercial grower within county limits. Other urban farms are small, employing 3-5 people, whereas we will employ five times as many. None of the other farming operations connect with the schools to give credit to students for learning practical applications of science. In addition, we believe we should strive to integrate into the fabric of the community through strategic partnerships with individuals and organizations. We have already built several key community partnerships to build on the assets of each to more effectively develop our comprehensive capabilities. For example, we are working closely with the Visiting Nurse Association and City Fresh, Cleveland’s community-supported agricultural program, as our primary clients, providing 2,000+ families combined with weekly shares of freshly grown produce.

Program Description:

$6.7 Billion was spent in northeast Ohio on food in 2008, and only $200 Million went to local farmers and food producers. In order to capture a greater share of that market, we need to be producing food year-round, in a way that’s affordable and readily available. CGP will be a major player in an effort to get the local economy to buy 20% of their annual food budget locally -- an effort begun by E4S.org and localfoodcleveland.org.

Program Description:

We will spearhead this effort by offering an education program wherein we will help train people to start their own high-yield gardens using funding from the City of Cleveland's "Gardening for Greenbacks" program. We will help these micro-enterprise entrepreneurs maximize the effectiveness of their grants, supply technical assistance and manpower, and act as an aggregator for their crops. We will buy their output, and combine it with other small gardeners into a larger share that will then be sold to partner organizations and retailers.
