After years of contributing to complex space missions, Ezinne Uzo-Okoro set her sights on implementing her childhood dream of improving global stability through food security.
During PLS, Uzo-Okoro’s organization, Terraformers.com, deployed an online platform to help anyone with a black thumb grow affordable and fresh produce at home through easy access to local garden experts. The organization takes an entrepreneurial approach to global food security by facilitating the installation of backyard edible gardens to reduce food deserts and improve nutrition through access to clean and healthy foods.
