Welcome to For The People
I would first like to thank you for visiting our site! We are a nonprofit in its infancy, and call St. Louis our home. Our goal is simple, play a role in helping rebuild parts of St. Louis. Our plans focus on the development and modernization of communities in the city, while preserving its rich culture, existing community, and history.
Aldine Community Initiative
This is the site we have chosen to start our initial development for a number of reasons. The picture you see in the middle shows the location of a planned urban garden that ran out of funding. We hope to build off what they started, and with the communities help and support build it into more than a garden.
Vision for the Future
Our vision is to build spaces that can be used for community gatherings, promote interactions, and provide access to high quality produce. These spaces will be much more than gardens. They will be spaces built based on the feedback of the community near it to create a better quality of life for them. We hope that with the feedback and assistance of the people of St. Louis we will build better communities.

We are currently in the process of becoming a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit to allow us to have benefits that would help further our mission. This will also allow donors have the benefit of getting a tax waiver for their donations. It will help us and help you! While monetary donations help continue our cause donations of items, property, and expertise are equally welcomed! Feel free to contact us if you would like to donate those types of items.
