I-­SEEED began in 2010 with a small group of individuals committed to making a difference in people’s everyday lives. We have quickly grown into a “Greenhouse for Urban Innovation” for the young, the elderly, farmers, producers, parents, planners, policy-­makers, educators, artists, scientists, and eco-­business visionaries that are dedicated to creating practical solutions for people and the planet. In the same spirit that inspired Wangari Maathai to become the first African Woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, I-SEEED along with our strategic partners, is pioneering innovative approaches to meet the educational, environmental, and economic challenges of the 21st century.
