Soil is geology with life. 

Dirt is geology without life.

The Credible Food Project regenerates life in dirt to build healthy soil, healthy crops, healthy ....


Our Beginning

Where we are now

Where we are getting to

The Credible food project took roots in East Africa helping the people build carbon stocks in soil to reverse desertification.

Now located in Jersey Channel Islands we specialize in training farmers, growers, amenity providers, schools, universities etc to put the life back in the soil.

On completion of the 3 day Credible Food course growers start transitioning to regenerating their biggest asset - soil

On completion of the 5 day Credible Food Beyond Organic course growers become net carbon positive farmers, which means reduced costs, increased yields, and greater benefits to society than society realizes.


“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need is a seed.”



Shabazz had to extend the garden to her front lawn but even then, it wasn’t enough to feed all who wanted to be involved. With neighbors January Blum and Lucas Dupont, Shabazz found a large vacant lot on Main Street and secured it as a farming cooperative. Word about Project Sprout spread throughout Kent County, so the team was invited to help start other community gardens.

Our Mission

Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.

Get Involved

If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
