Wealth Creation

Wealth Creation


We have a need for local wealth creation.




Wealth creation is not riches, but more resources. It is taking human effort and combining it with raw materials to create value greater than the sum of its parts. It is turning the local food model from 98% imports into an export. We can and will become the source of choice for produce in the market, thereby turning regional food consumption from a wealth exporter, to a wealth importer.

Employment is at the top of our list.


The human capital element is critical to Rhode Island Grows. The majority of jobs in the current local farming model are seasonal. For the benefit of our community as well as our business success, we will be hiring full time, living wage jobs into all positions. Continuous education, training and advancement throughout our workforce will lead us to greater harvest yields, superior quality, and enhanced profitability.

We have committed to creating an advanced, comprehensive, state-of-the-art training program in partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, RINLA, the University of Rhode Island and others to build a workforce to exceed expectations in our greenhouses. Our training program will be focused on a “Learn while you earn” model that not only develops our workforce acumen in specific competencies, but also develops the individual supplying them with industry accredited certificates and a path to degrees and further continuing education in all areas of our business. This will position us to generate and nurture qualified employees to effectively utilize the capital resources that we are putting in place.

Wealth creation simple:


When considering the two economies in Rhode Island, they appear from the street to be the same. Local folks that you may even know work and greet you at both. They both give to local organizations and display a genuine concern for the community, even the metrics are the same until the last factor. The global economy does not reinvest in your community directly, despite what some may say. The local economy however, does reinvest… every minute. Adding wealth-creating local businesses compounds that effect tenfold competing with imports and bringing revenues in from exports. Add to this the use of banks with high local loan volumes… 100 fold. The answer for Schartner Farms is also the answer for Rhode Island… we need to grow our way out.

 

An ear of corn has 800 kernels. If you eat 799 of those kernels and plant just one, in 75 days you will have a 1600 kernel gain.


There is nothing man made that exhibits wealth creation more efficiently than nature. A wealth creation strategy is not just in a single business but is reinvesting back into the surrounding community. Incredible wealth can be created just producing our own food.
