Mission

The mission of OurSpace World, Inc. is to cooperatively educate, organize, and support squads of land stewards and Earth healers.

What We Do

Founded in 2011 by the grandson of a sharecropper, we are a small, Black-led nonprofit in Southern Maryland with a mission of cooperatively educating squads of land stewards and Earth healers. We do this through our 3 integrated and intergenerational programs that: 1) teach farming and building skills [Project Teach22]; 2) cultivate and incubate cooperative initiatives [The Ujima Initiative]; and 3) funnel resources and technical assistance to mission-aligned groups and organizations [Calabash]. Since our 2017-2018 organizational pivot and hiatus, we have started/revitalized 6 community farms/gardens, provided several hundred hours of farming and building skills education, incubated an 11-member land collective of Black families, started a bulk-buying club, and funneled over $150,000 via fiscal sponsorship and technical assistance toward land access, land-based infrastructure, and food security projects for Black farmers.
