Background Statement This story began with one tomato plant in a backyard. Anthony and Staroyce Nealy began with a home garden. This home garden began in 2007. Then,  the garden was extended to our senior citizen neighbor and began building relationships with faith-based organizations and pastors of urban churches. These community gardens soon grew to encompass an acre, adding to Global One Urban Farming acre to total 2 acres (this includes the two church locations.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Greetings, My name is Anthony Nealy. I am a Board Member and President of Global One Urban Farming. I want to reflect on being a founder with my wife Staroyce Nealy of this non profit 501 c 3 and its humble beginning. Almost 10 years ago we started our first home garden. We started purchasing vegetable plants from the city market and planting our home garden. We have been sharing our vegetables with our neighbors. From there we started putting in gardens in our neighbors yards until the demand became too large.
 
We formulated a nonprofit and began growing and distributing vegetables to seniors and families in our communities here in In Kansas City Missouri. October 2016 we formulated our non profit into a 501(c)(3) organization. Since that time we have built relationships and partnerships with local businesses and nonprofit organizations. We are and have been volunteers for the KCMO school district teaching the greenhouse process to students grades k-8 since 2013, now to date we have a 46,000 sq. ft. garden location and currently have grown over 25000lbs of organic vegetables that we distribute free to the public.

Examples of Program Success The student and their families eat more daily servings of vegetables. Our of our newest programs is having my a 10yr old boy host a class of 8-12 year old's on tasting new fruits and vegetables.  We score how many children are involved, how many new vegetables or fruits were liked or disliked.  I have had parents come to me and tell me the different vegetables that their children have begin to eat since tasting our vegetables.
