I am Adenike "Nuta" AmenRa. I am a Natchez Native American. I live life as a homesteader,
boldly growing Heirloom fruits, veggies, and herbs, using vacant lots, in an Urban/Suburban Landscapes, of the Midwest- Heart of America- Kansas City, Missouri. I make soil, cultivated using Straw and Strictly Natural Organic Compost, from a Vermiculture of worms, spent coffee grounds, leaves, grass cuttings and sometimes even community contributions of barbershop hair, families or restaurant kitchen scraps, lawn care clippings from all over the metro Kansas City urban landscape!
*Amen Ankh means sacred life. This is a Health and Wellness ministry, to abolish Food Deserts by returning neighborhoods to Victory Gardens and local grown access to healthy non-GMO Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, and to foster initiatives for Healthy living, and prosperity. As an exceptional Education teacher, I realized in many instances, that heavy medications were replacing love and good foods. Many of my students parents struck out of the public school system, to home school their children in a healthy cultural environment. I decided to assist by offering Tutoring, and an Afrikan Centered Accelerated STEAM Curriculum. We are a part of the Amen Ankh Gnome movement*

**I am Adenike "Nuta" AmenRa. I am an Indigo Natchez Native American. We practice Ancient KMT Spirituality, living my life as an urban homesteader, gleaning Local wild herbs like Dandelion, Clover, Plantain, to make added value products. I enjoy growing the "3 Sisters" of (Heirloom Popcorn, Green Beans, and Squash/Melons,) in vacant lots, and creative spaces in Urban Landscapes, here in Midwest- Heart of America- Kansas City, Missouri. Our Plan is to cultivate the Soil using Straw bales and Strictly Natural Organic Compost, and Vermiculture, with Neighborhood contributions like spent coffee grounds, non-pesticide lawn leaves and cutting, or contributions of barbershop hair, or restaurant kitchen scraps, from all over the metro Kansas City urban landscape! We must move from a consumer based mentality to a producer base.
We know that grocery stores, filled with GMO foods, and even Organic foods alone, cannot provide optimal nutrition and deliver us from food deserts* WE MUST GROW OUR OWN FOODS! Or at least support and commission local growers and producers. Our motto is: "In order to free ourselves- WE MUST FEED OURSELVES! "
