Nuts & Bolts Nursery is about enabling resilient, decentralized food production in ways that fight climate change, increase biodiversity, and promote social and economic equity. We are about encouraging grassroots community projects and empowering YOU to shape your environment in a way that supports you and all the other beings that you share a little slice of Earth with.
We believe that one part of a multi-part solution to climate change and inequality is the building of a decentralized and democratic food system.
Nuts & Bolts Nursery believes in agency, both in the food system and in the workplace, which is why we are organized as a Worker Cooperative.
Imagine a world where every sidewalk was shaded by a canopy of nut trees and lined with a hedgerow of berries and herbs; every block had a forest garden full of apples and peaches and asparagus with chickens roaming free as they turn the compost; every yard producing vegetables for the homes, which are collectively-owned and democratically-managed by housing cooperatives. Imagine if the food you ate actually sequestered carbon in its production, rather than emitting it, and if the “farms” were actually hubs of biodiversity, rather than desolate monocultures. Imagine never having to go hungry because you live in an edible environment co-created with uncountable other beings, human and non-human, who help feed and support you. Imagine never feeling alone because the constant company of the birds, the bunnies, the butterflies, and the blossoms is always just footsteps away and there to comfort you.
