NWKids is a group of adventurous youth volunteers who use a unique blend of science,art
and modern technology to grow food for communities in need and visually transform urban areas.

What started as a local youth movement of young artist,urban gardeners and volunteers from northwest Washington State blossomed into a much larger vision. With your support we connect with like minded non profits to promote programs for food security, art gardens,environmental awareness,soil restoration and youth development.


We work together with our network of teachers, farmers, artist,scientist and other similar non profits to test and explore modern methods of agriculture, soil restoration,community art gardens and renewable energy in urban and rural  areas. So far we have successfully experimented with techniques such as Jadam Agriculture , Biochar, Green Manure, Fogponics, Kratky and aquaponics

We also are experimenting with commercial  Rocket ovens for baking fresh bread and work with local fruit vendors to squeeze fresh nutritious juice for children and seniors in the  community.

With your help we can continue our mission  to provide food security, environmental awareness,inspiration  and resources  to those in need.

Current Projects

Indigo Azul (“Blue Indigo”)

The “Indigo Azul” Project is a demonstration Food Forest and Learning center for youth being built in Jalisco MX on 1.5 acres of tropical growing space with room for up to 15 volunteers . To make this project come to life we collaborated with the INDIGO AZUL FOUNDATION in Jalisco,MX to demonstrate low cost and simple methods to grow nutritious produce for the community. We use simple technologies to grow food, to purify water, and restore the damage done to the native soils. Our programs are centered around youth development ,food production,clean water technology, language acquisition and soil restoration. All of our efforts are in alignment with at least 1 or more of the United Nations 17 sustainable goals.

Indigo Azul Project Mission
This project will provide clean water, fresh produce, and a safe place to play, for the 15-30 children in the Paso De Guayabo neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta, MX. Volunteers from both organizations host classes that teach the  youth agriculture skills,environmental awareness and work with local artist to beautify their community.. With your help and support this location will serve as the  blueprint for future projects as well as a working model for ongoing research and education.


According to the World Food Program, over 828 million people go to bed hungry every night, A total of 50 million people in 45 countries are teetering on the edge of famine.

For many people all over the world simple access to sustainable farming methods and  nutritious produce can change everything.
Our mission is providing that access.


Over 20 Million children in Mexico live in extreme poverty. 25% of the population is without access to food. A staggering 52% are without access to clean drinking water. Lack of these basic essentials leads to a spiral effect of malnutrition, dental problems, dehydration and disease. Our youth volunteers are currently collaborating with The Indigo Azul Project in Jalisco, MX to build a sustainable food forest and art garden ran by youth in the Community of Paso De Guayabo MX.

On the contrast, In 2021, 33.8 million Americans, including 9.3 million children, lived in food-insecure households according to the USDA. Combine this  with a widespread lack of proper education about diet and nutrition, and we now see many children in minority communities and low income families suffering  the health effects of poor food choices.High blood pressure,obesity,diabetes and other diet related issues are much more common than they should be. We engage all of our youth in our United States programs with fun and educational ways to eat healthy and learn about where their food comes from.


Although food problems and solutions may differ depending on culture, community and geographic location,  they all deserve a committed response. We are now living in a time with the technologies and the capacity to make this a reality for every human being . If we take action now, and act responsibly, we have a chance to be part of the generation that will can turn things around for the generations to come. At NWKIDS we consider this both our privilege and our responsibility .


To put it simply soil is the basis of all human life and existence here on earth. The food that sustains our very lives is directly connected to the health of our agricultural lands. Part of our mission is to advocate and bring awareness to this global issue. Without intervention, we are now on a irresponsible and scary path to completely depleting the very soils that feed our planet within as little as 60 years. This is an issue that should unite us and not divide us. With more people becoming aware and bringing attention to this issue, we can campaign for sustainable policies in every nation to protect this precious resource.

Our youth are taught how to create awareness projects that encourage law makers and political leaders to create policies that will conserve and rejuvenate our planets soil .This is not a small task, We accept the Challenge. We feel a deep individual and generational responsibility to leave the planet in a better condition than it was when we arrived. Join us as we work together to build  food security for those in need and regenerate our soils for present and future generations.


 Culture Shock  Program by NWKIDS

The Culture Shock Program is our pilot program based in Seattle,WA. .We provide a wide range of environmental education to youth about  subjects such as soil restoration, foreign language acquisition, cultural awareness,renewable energy,alternative food production,clean water technologies ,agroforestry and first aid. After training our youth get opportunity  to travel  locally or abroad and use their new skills to help affected communities and other non profits with similar missions. It gives the youth a chance to expand their cultural perspectives,see the world and be of service all at the same time.   

Common skills learned in our programs:

Alternative agricultural methods

Language and communication skills (multilingual approach)

Recycling and re-purposing waste products

Cultural awareness and respect

Water Filtration and purification Biochar production

Sustainable energy production (wind | solar | biofuels | DC powered lighting and systems )

Agroforestry and carbon capture with fast growing trees and bamboo

Biogas production
