Sweet Potato Project Encourages Enterprise

The Sweet Potato Project, started by journalist Sylvester Brown, Jr., will work in partnership with St. Louis University and a small cadre of local nonprofits called the North City Food Hub to hold culinary, small business, horticulture, restaurant management, and land-ownership classes and business incubator opportunities this spring. The goal is to enable at-risk youths in North St. Louis to grow food and make money through food packaging and distribution. The project encourages people to become innovative, self-sufficient players in today’s expanding global economy.

Brown says, “Success doesn’t always mean you’ve made a lot of money; it can also mean you’ve survived poverty or managed to create something.”
