ABOUT

Our Story

Red Giant Union was born in 2013, and later established as a Public Charity in 2015, in Lafayette, IN by Austin Kasso. Over the years, we have become one of the most trusted and effective organizations focused on promoting, fundraising, and building urban farms to tackle food and water insecurity. We are entrepreneurs united on a mission to resolve the world food crisis. Watch us grow, or join the mission. Either way, Resistance is FERTILE.

Majostee Allstars Community Center

The Red Giant Union is proud to unite with the Majostee Allstars to plant seeds, not police, in one of Chicago's most neglected and violent areas on the south side. Red Giants will be heading a rooftop farm which will educate and engage children and families on how to grow a new economy.

Featured Tower Farm

Our Tower Farm currently located at 215 Smith St. in Lafayette, IN is growing fresh greens for the community. 30% of our produce is free to the public.

Who We Work With

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH HYDRO GROW LLC

Red Giant Union has formed a strategic partnership with Hydro Grow LLC. Hydro Grow LLC manufacturers hydroponic appliances that eliminates a user's dependence on a grocery store for most produce using 95% less water than traditional farming methods. Our partnership would make the food grown by their appliances available to the community that our foundation aims to serve.

TIPPECANOE EXTENSION - LOCAL FOOD PROGRAM

Connecting Indiana food producers and buyers with innovation and education for a strong local food system.

WEST LAFAYETTE FARMERS MARKET

It’s healthier for you and the environment, and builds our community. Just-picked produce packs in the most nutrition, and is often on your table within hours of leaving the farm. That’s fast food. You’re not buying foods from another state or country, and that leaves a smaller environmental footprint. And you strengthen our local economy and our sense of community when you shop local. It's fun, it's healthy, it's outdoors. Shop inside the box.

BENNETT'S GREENHOUSES

Their support will include providing resources such as seeds as well as volunteers to teach gardening classes at our location downtown. This is a community effort to build our local food system so we are extremely grateful for their commitment. Thank You, Bennett's, for bringing us this much closer to a sustainable future.
